Australians who have not yet pre-registered their interest in a Medibank Private Share Offer prospectus have only four more days to do so.
Australian residents who pre-register by 15 October 2014 to receive a prospectus for the Share Offer and then apply for shares can receive a preferential allocation of shares.
Eligible Medibank and ahm policyholders who pre-register and then apply for shares can receive a greater preferential allocation than non-policyholders who pre-register.
The Government is happy with the strong level of interest in pre-registration to date.
The Government will announce the final outcome of the pre-registration process after the closing date.
People can pre-register online at www.medibankprivateshareoffer.com.au or call 1800 998 778.
