Thanks to Medipass and our incredible integration with them, you are able to submit Medicare bulk billing and patient claims, lodge DVA claims, accept card payments and process HICAPS rebates, all without a terminal and without needing to leave your Splose workspace.
This help guide will cover:
- How to set up a Medipass account

The incredible part about our integration is that everything has been carefully thought out to automate your workflow.

All you literally need to do is press "Submit claim" in Medipass - there is no double handling of information!
