Use the Electronic Claim Lodgement and Information Processing Service Environment (ECLIPSE) to submit Simplified Billing claims and patient claims for in-patient services.

Simplified Billing

You can use ECLIPSE to submit Simplified Billing claims.

Simplified Billing reduces the number of accounts a private patient gets after being in hospital.

Hospitals or billing agents can submit claims on behalf of the provider to get both the Medicare benefit and private health insurer gap payment.

Simplified Billing means your patient only pays one out of pocket expense to the provider.

ECLIPSE streamlines the way patients pay their bills, claim Medicare benefits and claim from their private health insurer.
