HICAPS Terminal Features

  • Multi-Merchant Facility - EFTPOS settlement can be deposited into up to 26 separate bank accounts for individual practitioners for no extra cost.
  • Practice Management System / HICAPS Interface Solution - The entire HICAPS transaction is completed within your Practice Management System at the same time as updating patient records. 
  • HICAPS Accounts Online allows you to view your HICAPS transactions and statements online and provides flexible reporting on demand. 
  • HICAPS Payment and Reconciliation solution. HICAPS, on behalf of a number of health funds that are participating in our Payment and Reconciliation solution, will credit one amount on each settlement day that represents the consolidated total of all of the HICAPS claims you have processed for those health funds.
  • Medicare Easyclaim is a Medicare Australia initiative that allows patients to process their Medicare claims and receive their rebates through the HICAPS terminal at your practice. 
  • WorkSafe Victoria - HICAPS now allows practices to lodge your patients’ workers compensation claims via the terminal, which are then sent to WorkSafe for assessment.
  • Quotation functionality - The HICAPS terminal provides quotation functionality that enables your patients to receive an estimate on their health insurance benefit before receiving their service.  Not all health funds are currently participating in the quotation function.

  • Contactless Technology - Allows patients to make payments under $100 without having to input their pin.
  • Broadband/Ethernet Connectivity - there is no need for an analogue phone line.

Cost Savings with HICAPS

Did you know that HICAPS can save you money? HICAPS can help to reduce the practice's bank fees and charges that are normally associated with the running of a practice.

For example, when a claim transaction is processed through HICAPS there is no Merchant Service Fee (MSF) payable on the rebate amount. So, you can save money every time a patient* claims successfully using HICAPS.
