Medicare update


#1

Hello. I am new to Cliniko and still trialling it at the moment.
I’ve been using a program called Genie which talks to Medicare automatically (I inherited it from the previous practitioner - it has a lot of functions I don’t need which is one looking at changing) .
I do not have a HICAPS machine, and wondered how do other clinics claim Medicare for their clients?
Some people are bulk billed and some people pay a gap.
Many thanks!

Hi @Karen
Some clinics also claim via Medicare’s online claiming portal, HPOS
( https://www.humanservices.gov.au/organisations/health-professionals/services/medicare/hpos )
You need to register with them to use it.

Hope this helps!
