The Australian Government is expanding My Health Record for all Australians in 2018.

By the end of January 2019, a My Health Record will be created for every Australian unless they choose not to have one.

How can I opt out?

If you decide that you don’t want a My Health Record created on your behalf, you will have the opportunity to opt out during the opt-out period.

This period will run from 16 July (now extended) to 31 January 2019. It’s not possible to opt out of having a My Health Record before this period starts on 16 July 2018.

For more information on the opt-out process, please visit the My Health Record web site.
