My Health Record opt-out period has been extended
My Health Record was designed so you can keep
track of your important health information all in one
place. A My Health Record will be created for every
Australian who wants one after 31 January 2019. It’s
your choice. If you don’t want a record created for
you, you still have time to opt-out.
The Minister for Health has announced that the optout
period will be extended until 31 January 2019.
The opt-out website www.myhealthrecord.gov.au and
the Help line will be available until 31 January 2019.
You can also choose to register for a My Health
Record or cancel at any time. For people who do not
opt out, their My Health Record will be automatically
created after 31 January 2019.
