    The only real benefit of having you all on the same card is for the Safety Net (once you hit the threshold combined then you get more back for the year).

    Thats not entirely true either as you can have your cards linked so that you have a combined threshold.

    My DD1 (5.5yrs) is on her own card simply because she has a double barrel surname so apparently can't be on my card. Her card is linked with mine though so its no big deal.

    That's strange about the surname. My friends son has his mum AND dads surname but is on both parents cards. Even when I used my maiden name I was on the same card as DH (then DP) and SD (then just DP's daughter).

    Sometimes I wonder if Medicare etc just change the rules to suit themselves haha.

    Actually I don't think you even need your cards linked for the safety net. DH and I don't have linked cards, but my accountant still claims all his medical expenses at tax time on my tax.

    It might just be that I haven't been audited though...

    No you don't, you just register them together online. I did mine and DH's yesterday. And because I get fringe benefits DH claims all my medical expenses at tax time.

    Hi there.
    I wonder if you can tell me how you are able to get the kids names on both cards?
    As my partner was told by c/link he cant do this.

    Just go into Medicare and get your partner to fill in a form. Super easy
