Set up Medipass card payments
If you'd like clients to be able to pay a gap payment after making a claim with HICAPS all in one transaction, you will need to enable Medipass card payments. With this enabled, you can complete the entire transaction for clients without a terminal.
Add private health insurance details for a client
To pass a client's private health insurance details to Medipass, and save you from having to enter their details each time you need to process a claim for a client, you must enter the fund details from the client details page.
You can search from the list of Australian health funds.
Set up item codes correctly in services settings
In order to pass the correct service information to Medipass, you'll want to make sure your services have correct item codes in order to process a HICAPS claim.
In Settings, then Services, select a service and under actions, click the three dots to edit a service.
Check that you have the correct item code, then click Save.
You can also search item codes in Medipass in Services or while creating an invoice.
Initiate a HICAPS claim for a client
You must create an appointment and add the appointment to a case. You can see if an appointment is attached to a case by viewing the appointment from the appointment details side modal or the cases page.
Ensure that your provider number should be set up correctly and connected to Medipass. Click + Invoice from the appointment modal.
Thanks to our auto-saving invoice feature, all you need to do is click View invoice.
Here, you just need to select Add payment to bring up the payment modal.
Rather than allocate a payment, you will need to click the HICAPS claim + link next to the HICAPS logo.
The Medipass screen will be displayed and pre-fill available details from Splose for the claim, such as location, practice, provider information, referral information and client information.
All you have to do is review the information and then click Continue to payment.
📝 Note: It's not recommended to make any changes to the service here so that the invoice remains synced with Splose.
The Medidpass screen will be updated, showing that the transaction is now waiting for the client to approve the request.
How your clients can make a claim and instantly receive the health fund benefit
Your client will receive an SMS with a link to approve the HICAPS claim. The client will need to allow location services (if requested).
Upon clicking Continue, your client will then be moved to the payment request screen.
The client can choose to pay with Google Pay, Apple Pay, credit card or in person.
If the client completes the payment, the Medipass screen and payment modal will be closed and the invoice will be marked as paid, allocating the benefit payment and remaining payment as a new payment reference.
Your client will receive the following message and have the option to send a receipt to themselves.
Review the Medicare claim status after submitting a claim
If the client makes a claim and pays the gap payment, the Medipass screen will be closed down and a HICAPS status card will be displayed on the invoice.
You can click on the payment link to view the payment created.
