Assisted card payments allows you to submit a Medicare patient claim and process the associated payment, all on behalf of the patient.
Allowing you to process payments for patients who either do not have a smart phone, or who do not have the ability to use it for Medipass claiming and payment.
Create your Medicare payment request as normal (for information on creating a Medicare payment request, see this article). Once you've filled in all of the required details, select "Continue to payment."
You will then be then shown an overview of your transaction and be given a list of payment options.
From these options select 'Enter payment card details". From here you can then enter in your patient's card details and process the transaction.
If the patient provides consent, you can save their card details for future transactions. If you have your patient's card details stored you can elect to "Use patient's saved card."
If your patient would like to use a different card than the one you have, simply select "Enter payment card details".
After you've put in the correct payment card, click "Submit". The payment will be taken from the payment card and the claim will be raised to Medicare.
