Friendly Feet Podiatry Clinic has both HICAPS and EFTPOS facilities.
HICAPS is an electronic health claiming and payments system that lets you process your claims automatically after your treatment and before you leave the surgery.
With HICAPS you no longer have to make a separate trip to your private health fund to lodge your claim or send your claim via the post. The claim is finalised on the spot immediately after your consultation.
So there’s no need to pay the full consultation fee up-front then wait for the reimbursement of your benefit.
It’s so convenient and easy! All you need is your health fund membership card.
After the consultation, your health fund card id simply swiped through the HICAPS terminal by our office staff. Your claim details are entered and in seconds the whole transaction is processed.
Once your claim is authorised by the health fund, you simply pay the balance amount – the difference between the full fee for the treatment and the amount claimed from your health fund.
Please note that different funds have different rebates, also dependent on the level of your cover.
As we have also installed EFTPOS and HICAPS, then you pay the balance with your credit card or debit card.
And the whole process is quick and easy! No more queuing or claim forms to fill in.
