Setting Up Medipass

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

Nookal integrates with Medipass for ease of third-party payments.

What is Medipass?

Medipass aims to modernise Australian healthcare billing and claiming. This is a central connection point to the numerous bodies that fund clients’ care.
Medipass integration to Nookal allows raising claims and invoices for:

  • Medicare
  • DVA
  • Private health insurers
  • Patient-funded (credit card payment)

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

1. A Medipass account is needed before setting up the integration, if you don’t already have one, head to medipass.com.au to see if this product is suitable for your practice and to sign up.


2. Access to Medicare and DVA from your Medipass account is also required to claim Medicare/DVA with Medipass. Find out how to request access to Medicare and DVA from within your Medipass account here.

Once a Medipass account is set up with access to Medicare/DVA, follow the steps below to set up the integration to claim with Medipass within Nookal.
