It’s important to update your Medicare card before updating your name with TUH (Teachers Union Health) as private health insurance records are linked to Medicare. If the name on your TUH account doesn’t match your Medicare card, your claim may be rejected.

Different health insurance organisations have varying procedures for updating your name after marriage, divorce, or legal name change. Some require a special form while others need a letter or their own change of name form. If you’re changing your name, you may need to notify up to 15 organisations, including TUH. This can take up to 6 hours of research and administration time.
To simplify the process, you can consider using a personalised name change kit. These kits contain pre-addressed letters with all your name change information, including any required special forms. They take only 15 minutes to create and can be delivered to you within minutes of purchase. With a name change kit, you can save yourself time and effort in researching name change procedures for TUH and other organisations. You can get the necessary paperwork and procedures for over 500 Australian organisations in the time it takes to log in and learn the procedures yourself.
