Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Access Line

1800 556 955

A free call telephone service that helps Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians get information about, or access to, Medicare services and programs.

This service is supported by staff who are culturally aware of the special conditions that may affect Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians.

Note: Call charges apply from mobile phones. 

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians who don’t have identification, such as a birth certificate, can enrol in Medicare with our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Medicare enrolment and amendment form (0905). Your patients can also enrol or change their details by going to humanservices.gov.au and search for Medicare Voluntary Indigenous Identifier.
