Medicare Bulk Bill
Your billable items will also need to have MBS Item Numbers associated which you can read about here:
Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS Items)
And your provider numbers which you can read about here:
Accepting Bulk Bill Payments
When you accept Bulk Bill payments from Medicare you are accepting their scheduled rate for the service.
When you have an invoice with Medicare claimable items added (items that all have a valid MBS item number) you can pay the invoice using the Bulk Bill button.
After your patient follows the steps presented on the Tyro payment terminal a message will appear in Practice Master to indicate whether it was a success or a declined/failed transaction. If successful a payment item will be added under the 'Payments' tab indicating the Bulk Bill details.
The amount paid for the services are determined by the Medicare Benefits Schedule. If your charged amounts differ then you are not allowed to adjust the amounts as the schedule amount must be accepted. In this case an 'adjustment item' will be added to the invoice to account for any difference.
Medicare MBS Items
When you have an invoice with Medicare claimable items added (items that all have a valid MBS item number) and the amount charged is more than the scheduled amount you can click the 'Bulk Bill' button to pay.
After your patient follows the steps presented on the Tyro payment terminal a message will appear in Practice Master to indicate whether it was a success or a declined/failed transaction. If the transaction was successful a payment item will appear on the 'Payments' tab and also a 'Medicare Bulk Bill Adjustment Item' will appear on the invoice to reconcile the fees and leave no money owing.
