Setting up LanternPay

Sam Written by Sam
... on a magical May day.

Nookal integrates with LanternPay to assist with the automation of claiming third-party payments.

What is LanternPay?

LanternPay is a multi-program claim payments platform that simplifies the complexity of claim payments to provide greater choice and control to participants, providers, approvers and programs across the health, care, disability, insurance and ageing sectors.

LanternPay offers claiming for:

  • The Transport Accident Commission of Victoria (TAC)
  • WorkSafe Victoria (coming soon to Nookal)
  • National Disability Insurance Scheme (coming soon to Nookal)
  • Private health insurers (coming soon to Nookal)

All of these transactions can be processed without the use of a terminal.

A LanternPay account is needed before setting up the integration, if you don’t already have one, head to lanternpay.com/get-started to see if this product is suitable for your practice. Their helpful support team is also available at 1300 LANTERN or support@lanternpay.com for any questions you have about getting set up.

Once a LanternPay account is set up with access to the relevant claiming bodies, follow the steps below to set up the integration to claim via LanternPay in Nookal.
