Medibank OSHC is committed to ensuring the security of the information you provide us via Online Member Services (OMS).
Access to OMS is controlled using your login ID and password. Please make sure that you keep your login ID and password secure, as any action performed on OMS using your login ID will be treated as yours. If you think someone else may know your password, you should change your password as soon as possible.
If you need to update your account information, we request that you do so by logging into your Online Members Services account or calling us on 134 148.
Medibank OSHC will NEVER:
call or email you asking you for your OMS login ID or password.
send you an email asking you to verify your online member details. Any email asking you to verify or confirm your account details or using a similar form of words, is most likely a phishing scam.
We take Online Fraud very seriously. If you think you may have revealed your security details in any way please contact us immediately on 134 148.
Phishing is the act of attempting to gain information such as usernames, passwords, and other personal or sensitive information by acting as a trustworthy organisation via electronic communication. Phishing often directs users to enter details on a fake website which looks and feels almost identical to the legitimate one.
If you think you may have received a phishing email, please forward the entire email with full header information (some email clients allow this with an option of sending as an attachment) to email@example.com.
