Australian Medicare Claims

Australian features can be turned on in the configuration so extra fields and an Australian menu appear.

The main feature is the ability to make online claims from MEDICARE Australia when you bulk bill clients, and have payments go into your bank account. Medicare "specialist" items are supported for one item / appointment. You need to purchase the medicare plugin. We hope to make it free in the future.

After a client has paid you can send a claim on their behalf to medicare (so they do not have to do it themselves). Often the claimant will be recorded as a child's parent.

The screen with Australian features enabled looks like:


 
Various reports are available to show the claiming process:

MEDICARE has advised that their plans are to decommission Adaptor technology from March 2022. We are moving to the replacement software.
