  • Provider Number related to the Location and Auth Group selected
  • Click Active = ticked

Set up for Tyro HealthPoint Claiming

Each Health Fund that a provider requires claims to be submitted for needs an entry in their user information. The details required are:
  • Health Fund – a line for each fund to be claimed for. But, the <ALL> option can be used if there are:
  • multiple Health Funds
  • and the Provider Number is the same for each one fund,
  • and these do not need to be listed out individually on any Invoices printed.
If the <ALL> option is selected, then any Health Fund without an individual listing will use the Provider Number in this line to process a Health Point claim. The Healthfund used for claiming is based on the client. Please note, this does NOT apply to Medicare Online Claiming. It MUST have a separate line and be specified as Medicare Online.
  • Location – If the provider number is the same for each location then the <ALL> location can be selected, otherwise a line for each Fund / Location combination is required.
  • Provider Number – Relevant provider number for the Fund / Location combination
  • Auth Group – only relevant for Medicare Online Claiming and not to be selected for Health Point claiming
  • Active – To be checked if the line is to be used
