On the spot claims on extras services
With the majority of extras claims such as dental and optical, health providers can process your claim on the spot using EFTPOS-style claiming facilities provided by HICAPS and iSOFT HealthPoint.
These are often referred to as "On the spot" claiming. On the spot claiming has become the preferred option for most policyholders, with more than 85 percent of eligible claims being processed this way.
All you have to do is swipe your membership card and sign to validate the service. Your claim will be automatically lodged with Emergency Services Health and we pay the provider directly.
There is no need to pay the full consultation fee up-front and then wait for reimbursement of your benefit. Just present your Emergency Services Health membership card, pay any out of pocket gap and you're done.
Who offers on the spot claiming?
To find out if your health provider offers on the spot claiming simply look for the HICAPS & iSOFT logo or contact your health provider.
You can also search online for health providers that offer HICAPS.
While Emergency Services Health accepts most claims on the spot, the service is not available for pharmacy, health appliances (including hearing aids), counselling and eye therapy. By handling these claims manually, we are able to deliver better and fairer benefits to our members for these services.
There may also be situations where benefits cannot be processed on the spot, or where there is no benefit entitlement. In these situations, you will be asked to contact Emergency Services Health.
Other extras services claims
Not all extras claims can be lodged on the spot. For extras claims that cannot be lodged on the spot simply fill out an Emergency Services Health claim form and send it with the relevant accounts and receipts to any of the three options:
Email: firstname.lastname@example.org (Include your membership number in the email subject line)
Mail: Emergency Services Health, Reply Paid 84966, Halifax St SA 5000
Free Fax: 1300 151 152.
Alternatively, if you are happy for the money to be paid into your nominated contributor account you can download the Emergency Services Health Mobile Claiming App.
