Step 3: Follow these instructions when completing the above forms

  • Registered Medicare Australia Communities of Interest (CoI) Site Certificate Form
    The Duly Authorised Officer (DAO) is the contact person for this Medicare Online Application.
    The DAO can be the business owner, manager or an individual health provider (with a provider number) eg. Doctor

    If the DAO is not a health provider with a provider number (i.e. doesn't have a provider number issued under their name), the DAO will need to provide 100 points of certified ID which must be 2 of the following:
Part A Documents Birth Certificate 70 points

If the DAO can't provide 2 of the above stated forms of ID, the DAO must provide a Statutory Declaration explaining why the DAO is unable to provide the 100 points ID.

All photocopies must be certified by an Acceptable Referee outlined in the Acceptable Referee Identification Form and must be the same person certifying all the other documents.

You can leave Section 12 of the Registered Medicare Australia Communities of Interest (CoI) Site Certificate Form blank.

You also need to supply a Letter of Authority on Company Letterhead stating that the nominated DAO can complete the paperwork on behalf of the Director/Owner of the Company. The letter must be certified by the Director/Owner and the nominated Duly Authorised officer. (They can be the same person.) A template can be downloaded here.
