Update to Medibank's Requirements for Recognised Providers 

Medibank has updated its Requirements for Recognised Providers. The particular amendments relate to facilities, privacy, average services and fair and reasonable charges. These requirements are effective from 25 March 2015. It is very important that you familarise yourself with the amended Requirements for Recognised Providers. We also suggest that you share this information with colleagues, supervisors, managers and owners of workplaces so they are aware of your responsibilities. 

Provider Number Issuing Update 

Medibank are improving the processes for issuing provider numbers. If you have reached the stage of meeting the required “Education Criteria” and have been placed on the monthly “Medibank Changes Report”, Medibank will send your Provider Number letter to the Office and then the Office will let you know and they will send the Medibank Number to you via email.  Make sure you keep this number safe and use it wisely. They are difficult to get and easy to lose. There is no “fast tracking” or “jumping the que”. Each member is treated as an individual.  When the Office request the member to send in certain information it is to assist you achieve recognition.  Please make sure you send in the requested information quickly so your case can be completed.  Patience and quiet determination to achieve your goal is required and attention to the information requested usually brings good results. Please refresh yourself with the MAA Medibank Private commitment requirements to meet the full criteria.
