Healthpoint - Health Fund Payments
Your billable items will also need to have Health Fund Item Numbers associated which you can read about here:

And your provider numbers which you can read about here:
Accepting Healthpoint Health Fund Payments
When you accept Healthpoint health fund payments from the patient's health fund by letting them swipe their health fund card in the Tyro payment terminal. Their rebate will automatically flow back in to Practice Master and any remainder can then be paid by the patient as a split payment.
When you have an invoice with Health Fund claimable items added (items that all have a valid 'Health Fund Item Number') you can pay the invoice using the 'Healthpoint' 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 health fund details.
If required, the Healthpoint health fund payment can be cancelled if the cancel button on the 'Payments' tab is clicked within 24 hours.
In the example shown the Healthpoint health fund payment has not fully covered the cost of the invoice. In this scenario the patient will need to pay the 'Gap' which can be done as a split payment. This can either be done as another card payment (shown) or as a Manual payment.
The split card payment will appear on the 'Payments' tab along side the Healthpoint health fund payment.
