It is essential to update your Medicare card before changing your name with RT Health, as private health insurance records are linked to Medicare. Failing to do so may result in your claim being rejected if the name on your RT Health account does not match your Medicare card.
Different health insurance organisations have varying procedures for updating names after a marriage, divorce, or legal name change. Some may require you to fill out a specific form, while others may ask you to send a letter or complete their own change of name form.

If you are changing your name, you may need to inform approximately 10 to 15 organisations, including RT Health. This process can take around six hours as you will need to research each organisation’s specific name change procedure, log in to their website, and complete their respective forms or letters.
However, you can save yourself time and effort by using a personalised name change kit that can prepare all your name change notifications for you. These kits contain letters pre-addressed in your name, along with all your name change information, and include any special forms required by your nominated organisations. You can receive your personalised name change kit within minutes of purchase and obtain the name change procedure and paperwork for RT Health and over 500 other Australian organisations in just 15 minutes, saving you time and effort.
