Medilink’s software provides practices with efficient tools to help you achieve the ideals of both. Your decisions as to who and why you may bulk bill is your business, as is the other billing and claiming methods and systems that you use. Smart use of the systems that we provide can help benefit your patients and at the same time help with your practices efficiency and financial health. Medilink’s offerings here are beyond most others and the systems used can ensure the ideals of your business management strategies in maximising income and cash flows, and minimising bad debts, whilst offering best of breed payment solutions to your patients.
This paperless online system uses certified EFTPOS terminals. It is the fastest payment system for patient rebates, encouraging rapid payment of services. Medilink worked very closely with Medicare (HIC then, now The Department of Human Services), Health Funds and some Banks to develop each of their initiatives for Online Claiming and Payment Systems. Easyclaim being the last of these three, when we became the first to offer HICAPS in 2010 and then TYRO as integrated EFTPOS claiming solutions to Medicare and or the Health Funds. Easyclaim is as the name suggests, is easy. Only one extra quick step is required when using one of the two abovementioned Medicare certified EFTPOS terminals. The direct benefits are to both the patient and the practice with immediate payments and on the spot rebates to the patient’s bank account.
Online Claiming for Private Patient Billings, and Bulk Billings of Medicare and DVA claims, for GP’s, Specialist and Allied Health practices. This is a highly efficient system, with payment turnaround times being rapid, often the next day. First to develop and successfully deploy Medicare Online (HIC Online previously) in 2002 Medilink has the more interment knowledge and expertise than any other competitor. Our clients have continued to benefit from the efficiencies of these online claiming systems with considerable improvements in cash flow and greater improvements in being paid in worst case scenario’s via Medicare’s 90 Day Cheque Payment scheme.
Medilink achieved another successful first to market, working intimately with the Health Funds and Medicare, in 2004. The benefits again have been hugely rewarding for Specialist performing In-Patient services for their patients. Prior to us helping invent this online system practices using paper based claims were commonly takin a month or more to be paid. Now it is often within a few days. Patients have also benefited via the practices real time quoting, knowing up front potentially any out of pocket costs that maybe associated with their operations. Again win, wins for all concerned thanks to Medilink caring about your practices bottom line and in helping you help your patients with their financial well-being.
