Essential Medicare Upgrade with the Power Diary Medicare Integration
Please note that in October 2022, Power Diary released a new version of our native Medicare integration to incorporate the essential Medicare upgrade. 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.
Power Diary provides a native integration to Medicare and does not send data through any third parties. Our systems are subject to direct security checks and Medicare verification to be certified. As always, there are no extra charges for processing Medicare & DVA claims through our direct integration.
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.

"It was easy to link to Medicare claiming and Stripe payments. I would not consider changing platforms. Very happy!"

"Fantastic PMS. Easy to use and provides great financial reports. I love how it is integrated with Physitrack, Medicare, DVA, and Stripe. Best decision I made to switch to Power Diary.”
