Australian Medicare Claims
Australian features turn on if you
are in Australia, so extra fields and an Australian menu appears.
There is a CleverPsych manual
describes Australian MEDICARE claiming.
- 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.
- 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.
- Claiming uses
MEDICARE Web Services technology,
which must be used after March 2022.
MEDICARE claiming is certified by Services Australia for use by
psychologists. Otherwise you can use HPOS to claim.
Medicare values are checked, and assistance is given for MEDICARE
