Get paid within 2-3 working days for Medicare (bulk bill) and DVA claims (excluding pathology claims — these take 14 days). Our billing software works for all disciplines. Whether you are a GP, specialist, allied health professional, community nurse, pathologist, radiologist, surgeon, surgical assistant, or VMO, we have you covered.
If you charge more than the Medicare or Veterans rate, you can send the invoice to Medicare using Patient Claims, so that your patients can get their rebates directly into their bank accounts without having to fill out any forms to claim their rebates. However, this only applies if you charge the patient an MBS item number. We recommend you ask the patient to pay the full amount on the day, you then send the invoice to Medicare using eClaims, then Medicare will receive this information and deposit the rebate into the patient’s bank account within 2 business days. This way, the patient is not out of pocket for long (2 days), and you have your money on the day and don’t have any debtors to chase up later.
If you provide services in-hospital, use eClaims to send your patient invoices to the health funds using ECLIPSE. Sending your invoices via ECLIPSE rather than manually (paper) means:
You can use eClaims to raise patient invoices to send to Insurers or any third party. These invoices are not sent electronically via Medicare Online or ECLIPSE. You will need to send them manually, but having these raised in eClaims means you can easily see what’s been invoiced and what’s still outstanding.
Minimise rejections from Medicare and the health funds by checking the patient’s health fund and Medicare eligibility prior to providing the service.
Get the numbers about your practice instantly. Know your daily or weekly revenue.
If you currently send your claims manually, one of your biggest challenges is knowing what is still outstanding. With eClaims, you can run a report anytime to see what’s still outstanding.
