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:
- Setting up a Medipass account
- Setting up practitioner reference numbers
- Connecting Medipass to Splose
The incredible part about our integration is that everything has been carefully thought out to automate your workflow. For example, all fields in Splose match those in Medipass, so when you raise a claim, Splose is able to push all of your data across. All you literally need to do is press "Submit claim" in Medipass - there is no double handling of information!
Medicare is Australia’s universal health insurance scheme. It guarantees all Australians (and some overseas visitors) access to a wide range of health and hospital services at low or no cost. The Medical Benefits Schedule (MBS) lists the medical services covered by Medicare. The schedule includes an MBS fee for each service. This is the amount (or benefit) the Australian Government thinks the service should cost. The schedule also includes how much benefit you can claim for each service.
Setting up a Medipass account
This guide assumes you have a Medipass account but in the case that you don't, you can head to the Medipass website and create a free account. If you have any questions, you can reach out to the Medipass team.

Set up practitioner reference numbers
After approval and before connecting Splose and Medipass, you must make sure that provider numbers entered in Splose and Medipass match in order to display approved practitioners in Splose and submit claims.
