Guide to Medicare reports

There are three types of reports that you can use to see a list of rebates processed, described below.

Medicare-generated reports (bulk bill and DVA)

You can see a complete list of bulk bill and DVA rebate claims for a particular day by viewing the daily Medicare-generated report, which is retrieved the day after you process a Medicare or bulk bill report.

You can access this report by clicking Reports > Medicare.

This report is automatically created for you on the day after you process bulk bill or DVA rebate claims, showing the amount that Medicare/DVA transferred to you overnight, with a separate report for each provider number. Click the date to see the full Bulk Bill and Payments Processing Report, which specifies which rebates were paid and which were not, and how much was paid for each rebate.

This report enables you to reconcile the amounts Medicare/DVA pays you, as the Medicare-generated report shows the payment date, total amount paid and the reference number which also appears in your bank account.

This report does not show rejected rebates.

Medicare Claims report (bulk bill, DVA and patient-paid)

The Medicare Claims report shows a full list of all patient-paid, bulk bill and DVA rebates, including rebates successfully processed, rebates unsuccessfully processed and rebates whose status is submitted. It also displays the payment run number and links to the daily Medicare payments report for that day.

To generate a Medicare Claims report:

  1. Click Reports > Finance.

  2. On the top right, click New Report.

  3. In the Report Type drop-down menu, select Medicare Claims. Select the date range and other filters (e.g. for a particular practitioner or location, or for rebates with a status of Submitted) as required.

  4. Click Run. A list of your rebates is shown including patient, bulk bill and DVA rebates, as well as their status (successful, unsuccessful, submitted):

    • If a rebate is shown as unsuccessful, look at the error code or explanation code shown on the report and made the changes required, then resubmit the rebate.

    • If a rebate is shown as submitted, contact Medicare to confirm that your Minor ID, provider number for this location and bank account have been correctly registered by Medicare and then reset and then resubmit the rebate.

If you contact Medicare about a rebate and they ask you for the claim ID, you can find the claim ID on the Medicare Claims report. Claim IDs are in the format Letter-digit-digit-digit-digit-@ - for example, L8765@.

This report provides a full list of rebates processed, but it can be time consuming to find only rebates with only one specific status, such as unpaid bulk bill and DVA rebates.

Report on unpaid invoices

The Unpaid Invoices report shows all invoices that are not yet paid. You can also filter the report by whether or not invoices are overdue and by the number of days that invoices are overdue.

Unpaid bulk bill and DVA rebates appear on the unpaid invoices report.

For Medicare, bulk bill and DVA rebates, you can then action the invoices as required:

  • If a rebate is shown as Unsuccessful, look at the error code or explanation code shown on the report and make the changes required, then resubmit the rebate.

  • If a rebate is shown as Submitted, contact Medicare to confirm that your Minor ID, provider number for this location and bank account have been correctly registered by Medicare and then reset and then resubmit the rebate.

If you contact Medicare about a rebate and they ask you for the claim ID, you can find the claim ID on the Medicare Claims report. Claim IDs are in the format Letter-digit-digit-digit-digit-@ - for example, L8765@.
