The Department of Human Services has just launched the Express Plus Medicare smartphone app, allowing parents to view their child’s immunisation history in the palm of their hand and to email the history to their child’s childcare centre or school.

The app allows users to view their Medicare claim history and Medicare Safety Net balance and to update their address and contact details.

If a Medicare card is lost or damaged, the Express Plus Medicare app allows you to order a replacement card.

To access Medicare services via the app, users must first create a myGov account and link to their online Medicare account.

Reportedly, more than six million myGov accounts have been created to date.

To register, head to and link to your online Medicare account. For more information about the Express Plus Medicare app, visit
