2023 Workers Compensation Rates for General Practitioners

** Medipass

How does Medipass work?

A link will be sent to your phone via SMS from Medipass. Follow the link to input your credit card details and a payment hold will be created. Payment is not taken until after the consultation. As this process is via Medipass, our clinic does not hold your credit card information. If a hold is cancelled, it can take 1 – 3 business days for this to be reflected in your account depending on your bank.

What is Medipass?

Medipass is a trusted, secure, web-based system already used by over 60 private and public insurers, Commonwealth and state government workers’ compensation agencies including Department of Veterans’ Affairs, Medicare, WorkCover Queensland and Insurance and Care NSW (icare). (https://www.comcare.gov.au/)

What is a Payment Hold?

Holds, or pre-authorisations, have been a common tool used by hotels to ensure that funds are made available and can be used after a service is delivered. In Medipass, we allow you to place a hold on the client’s payment card, which is valid for up to seven days. Once a service is delivered, a Payment Hold can be easily converted to a payment for the service. 

A hold is temporary. A payment hold will not remove money from the cardholder’s account, and the cardholder will not be charged interest on the hold amount. However, cardholders will not be able to spend the funds reserved by a hold if the account reaches its limit. This also applies for debit cards linked to a bank account. A payment hold will expire 7 days after creation. If it is not converted into a charge or cancelled before then, the funds will be released. (https://help.medipass.com.au/)
