My Health Record opt-out dates announced

The Australian Digital Health Agency advise that the notifiable instrument has now been added to the Federal Register of Legislation and the opt-out dates announced here.

The My Health Record opt-out period will be for three months commencing 16 July 2018. This will be followed by a 30 day reconciliation period. Every Australian will then get a My Health Record, unless they have informed us during the opt-out period they don’t want one.

The agency anticipate there may be an increase in media interest following the announcement. If you receive media queries, please redirect these to the Agency Press Office by phone 0428 772 421 or by email.
