Managing Payments

Fund Payments
Electronic health fund, DVA and Medicare payments are automatically entered into the database. If you are not a MedicNet billing service user, you will need to enter your patient payments, and cheques from workcover and MVA insurers manually. Click the appropriate record payment tab in the invoices view to reveal the payment entry form.

Patient Invoices
If you are on a self managed plan you will need to download and send the invoice to the patient by email or post. To download the invoice click on the green Patient Invoice link. Patient payments paid using the Medicnet BPay or credit card methods will be displayed when received. If you receive payment by another method you will need to record the payment manually. Reminder invoices are also available if required.

Over Dues
Any over due invoices are listed down the right side of the Invoices page.

Reconciling
The Reconcile Payments page provides a convenient way to check off the amounts recorded in Medicnet with your bank records. A link to this page can be found under Tools in the top menu. The number of payments to be reconciled is also shown in a block on the right of the Invoices page.

Sometimes the payments received are not exactly the same as the amount billed. If you are happy with the amount received you can manually set the invoice as paid. Do this by clicking on the 'Set Fund Paid' or "Set Patient Paid' link below payments received block. If you are a MedicNet billing service user you will not see these links as this process is handled by Medicnet.
