Medicare Name Change

Medicare Name Change

Medicare Name Change

A name change on your Medicare card may coincide with a change of circumstances. All name changes must be done in person at a Medicare office and you'll need to take your original marriage, divorce, amended birth or name change certificate with you, plus your current Medicare card.

If you have ended a relationship or just married you may want to change who appears on the same Medicare card. For instance, upon separation a couple may no longer want to be on the same card. On marriage, a couple may both want to be on the same card. The purpose of having multiple people listed on one card is so that Medicare benefits can be paid to any person who's name appears on the card. While you can transfer people on or off your Medicare card using the form we provide in your Easy Name Change kit and return by mail, you will need to attend an office in person if you want to change names, so a trip to Medicare is often inevitable.

Changing names anywhere else?

If you're changing names with Medicare, you probably need to change names with many other organisations, such as the ATO, passport, drivers license, banks and more. Let us provide you with all the procedures to change names for hundreds of Australian organisations, plus all the paperwork you need. We provide ready to send letters and faxes plus company specific name change forms. It's free to log in and see who we cover. We're sure we can save you hours or else we'll fully refund your money.



Medicare benefits can be paid to either husband or wife if both names are on the same Medicare card. Changing the name on your Medicare card should be done in person if you are putting both names, plus any children, on the same card.
