Unpaid and part paid accounts
Medicare Easyclaim and unpaid and part paid accounts.
There are 4 steps for unpaid and part paid accounts:
- the patient's Medicare card is swiped through the practice's EFTPOS terminal, or their details are stored in the integrated practice management software
- claim details are entered via the keypad or using the details stored in the integrated practice management software. Short-cut keys can be used for provider IDs and common item numbers
- the claim is sent to us for verification and an approval message is sent back to the terminal within seconds
- if we accept the service, a pay doctor cheque will be sent to the patient, who brings it to the practice along with any outstanding balance
