Claiming WorkCover Queensland with LanternPay by HICAPS

Sam Written by Sam
... on an amazing April day.

Setting up the LanternPay Integration is essential before processing any payments or Claims for WorkCover Queensland via LanternPay. The setup instructions can be found here.

LanternPay’s WorkCover Queensland integration is one-way, meaning after a claim has been successfully sent to WorkCover Queensland, the final outcome of the claim will not be updated in Nookal or LanternPay.

This also means that these invoices must be manually paid off in Nookal once they have been paid to you by WorkCover Queensland.

To receive updates on the claim’s status and payment remittance, please directly contact WorkCover Queensland.

WorkCover Queensland Claim Statuses

  • Sent – A status of Sent means the claim is now pending with WorkCover Queensland and any further correspondence will come directly from them, usually in the form of a WorkCover Queensland remittance. This is the final status a WorkCover Queensland claim will arrive at in our LanternPay integration.
  • Pending – A status of Pending means the claim details are currently being checked by LanternPay. Review the LanternPay Report to see if the status has been updated.
  • Rejected – A status of Rejected does not mean the claim has been rejected by WorkCover Queensland, rather it means the claim details need to be reviewed so the claim can be resubmitted. A Rejected status will also be accompanied by the reason for rejection to assist in correcting the claim details prior to resubmission.

The paid value of WorkCover Queensland claims will not be shown on the LanternPay Report.
