Medicare Online Claiming

1. Medicare Online Claiming
From the 31 January 2019, the certificate issued as part of the Medicare Online Claiming sign-up process with be replaced with a License to enable a different type of authentication. This is a result of a change in the authentication method used by the Claiming.co.au portal through which Medicare and DVA claims are sent. Licenses are issued by the Bp Allied Sales team. A license includes the Auth Group, Minor ID and Auth Group Name for the Practice.

Notes about Auth Groups and Minor IDs

  • Auth Group ID: unique identifier for the group of Provider numbers (or a Practice) that is uniquely identified at Claiming.com.au. There is a one to one relationship between Auth Group and Minor ID. A practice can have more than one Auth Group. Traditionally, this has been because a Practice has been required to have a separate Minor ID for each location.
  • Minor ID: unique identifier registered with Medicare, that all Provider IDs are linked to.
  • Auth Group Name: used to link a Provider ID to the relevant Minor ID within Bp Allied.
  • A Provider number can only be in one Auth Group. They need to be removed from any previous Minor ID / Auth Groups to be able to be added to an Auth Group in Bp Allied. This means that a practice will be unable to run Medicare Easyclaim and the Bp Allied Medicare integrations at the same time because they will be running under two different Minor ID numbers.
  • A practitioner can have more than one Provider Number.
  • A practitioner can have one or more Provider numbers in an Auth Group.
  • Individual bank accounts can be assigned to a Provider ID when registering the Provider ID against a Minor ID with Medicare.
A Practitioner's Provider number is allocated to an Auth Group in Options > User Administration > Provider Numbers.
Clicking View License will display the license details.
Note: Active checkbox: Indicates whether the AuthGroup and Minor ID are active at the claiming portal and claims can be made using these credentials.

The PKI certificate is an encryption infrastructure used by ReferralNet to enable the encrypting and decrypting (hence securing) of email messages. These certificates are managed by Medicare and are a required part of using ReferralNet. There is a email address that is designated for use with each PKI Certificate. This needs to be installed onto each computer on which secure messaging is to be used.
The PKI Certificate is allocated to a site rather than to an individual.
