Budget 2017: $375m to fund move to opt-out My Health Record

The federal government has allocated $374.2 million over two years from this July to provide all Australians with a My Health Record, unless they choose not to have one.

In a surprise move in tonight's budget, the government announced the funding will be used to support the expanded roll-out of the opt-out model, to improve operations of the system and to make it easier for health providers to register for it.
