Medicare Online Claiming

For any provider who requires Medicare online, Bulk Bill or DVA (VAA) claiming to be processed via Bp Allied, then the following needs to be set:
  • Healthfund = Medicare Online
  • Provider Number related to the Location and Auth Group selected
  • Click Active
See the Medicare Auth Groups report to confirm that the Provider Number is set up for claiming. Please note that all Provider Numbers need to be registered against the MinorID with Medicare. Please contact support if you have any questions about this.

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
