Power Diary is Ready for the Essential Medicare Upgrade!
Medicare Integration update: Our engineering team has been working on the essential Medicare upgrades for some time, and we’re well ahead of schedule to meet the 13 March 2022 deadline.
Power Diary provides a native integration to Medicare and does not send data through any third parties. This means that our systems are subject to direct security checks and verification by Medicare in order to be certified. As always, there are no extra charges for processing Medicare & DVA claims through our direct integration.
Please rest assured that as a Power Diary customer, there is nothing you need to do to ensure that your practice meets the new Medicare requirements.
Why use Power Diary with Medicare?
Power Diary’s integration with Medicare allows you to submit bulk billed or patient claims directly through Power Diary. This integration provides a direct connection to Medicare and does not involve any third parties.
All required claim information is stored in your Power Diary account, meaning that lodging Medicare claims is lightning fast. Do you provide services to children or adolescents? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Our integration also allows you to specify unique claims. There’s no terminal required and you can process your Medicare claims from anywhere.
More About Medicare
Medicare is Australia’s national health insurance scheme which subsidises the cost of many medical and allied health services.
Medicare aims to ensure that all Australians have access to free or low-cost medical, optometry, midwifery and hospital care and in special circumstances, allied health.
For additional information, see Medicare’s information for health professionals here, additional resources for health professionals here, or contact Services Australia.
