Entering provider numbers when claiming
So what’s a provider? That’s what we call the medical professionals (dentists, doctors, physios and so on) who provide health services here in Australia.
A recognised provider is a medical practitioner that is legally qualified to practice here in Australia.
- Hold appropriate registration or licence under the relevant legislation
- Have suitable qualifications or membership to a recognized professional body
- Be in an independent private practice.
If you want to search providers in your area to ensure they are recognised as well as use a HICAPS terminal to ensure easy claiming.
