HICAPS is a Health Industry Claims and Payments Service.
HICAPS is electronic and allows real time claims and payments which offers members of participating health funds the convenience of automatic claims processing on the spot and in the practice.
HICAPS saves you time and money... and delivers real business benefits to customers of health service providers.
Benefit to Customers
The real benefit to patients is convenience and speed. Payment can be made on the spot and rebates refunded in real time.
No more queuing at health fund branches and filling in claim forms.
This means you can go to your doctor or dentist and pay while you are there without having to go to another company (for example: medicare et al) and fill in forms and wait.
It can now all be done immediately while you are at the dentist and only takes a few minutes to complete.
For you as a patient, this is a WIN WIN situation.
