Tyro Medicare Easyclaim

EFTPOS and electronic claiming are now a must for healthcare providers. 


How does EFTPOS work with Medicare Easyclaim?



There are three ways your patients pay you:

  • Patient Paid

Here your patient pays you the full consultation fee upfront. With ntegrated Easyclaim they can swipe their EFTPOS card through your terminal and receive their Medicare rebate back in 11 seconds. This way, your patient leaves your practice with their rebate in their bank account.

  • Bulk Billed

In this situation, your patient does not pay you anything. Instead of you having to print off a DB voucher for your patient to sign, they can instead assign their right to benefit by pressing a button on your Tyro EFTPOS machine. There’s no need to waste paper or time! The claim is submitted to Medicare immediately and paid the following business day in a lump sum with all other approved claims.

  • Part Payment

This means that your patient pays part of the consultation cost. They then get a Medicare cheque for the balance in their mail, which they’ll have to drop off at your practice.

Using an EFTPOS with Medicare Easyclaim capability means that your patients can both make payments and receive their rebates through your terminals. Here are four ways your practice can benefit from EFTPOS with Medicare Easyclaim:

1. Less Paperwork, Less Headaches

Are your staff rekeying purchase totals into their EFTPOS terminal? If you’re running a modern day Practice Management Software, integrating with your EFTPOS will mean that all your sales are centralised, making reconciliation effortless. 

2. Faster Payments

2-second EFTPOS transactions. Integrated Easyclaim and the resulting 11-second rebates will help you run a tighter ship and reduce wait time between customers.

3. Streamlined Billing and Claiming Processes

There’s no need for multiple terminals to serve multiple practitioners when you use Tyro. Streamlining your billing process will mean much less administration for you and your staff.

4. Patients Medicare Claiming on the spot

Give your patients the convenience of Medicare Claiming on the spot, in your practice. With Integrated Medicare Easyclaim your patients walk out with their rebate. Following full payment, you can swipe your patient’s EFTPOS card and their rebate is deposited directly into their bank account.
