Just wondering how long it has taken other recently to receive their updated medicare card after their baby arrived?
My baby is 6 weeks old and we sent off the newborn forms (in the pack from the hospital) when he was 1.5-2 weeks old. I have received his birth certificate, and our baby bonus has started to be paid, but I haven't received a new medicare card. He has been sick so the GP bills are piling up waiting for the new card so I can claim the fees at medicare.
Is there another form I'm meant to fill in? I thought it was covered in the baby bonus/family assistance form.
Thanks for your help.
