Medicare DVA Benefits Report v1.1

When a consumer registers for access to their Medicare information through their digital health record, Services Australia will register the consumer’s Medicare documents in their digital health record which include the Medicare/DVA Benefits Report. The Medicare CDA documents will be created by Services Australia as the sole supplier of Medicare information within the My Health Record ecosystem.

The consumer, and healthcare providers with access to the consumer’s Medicare information, will be able to retrieve the Medicare/DVA Benefits Report CDA document through the consumer’s digital health record. Additionally, the data items in the Medicare/DVA Benefits Report document will be loaded into the My Health Record system to be used as source of data for the consumer’s Medicare Overview.
