Medipass adds support for NDIS [Updated May 2021]

Adrian Miles | May 19, 2021

Update: New payment features support NDIS compliant invoicing and payment for Self Managed and Plan Managed participants with an easier way to get paid for your services.

New feature updates:

  • New NDIS plan managers added to the directory, so you can support more Plan Managed participants
  • Innovative payment features for providers to process payments for Self-Managed participants without an EFTPOS terminal. 
    • Take payment in-rooms, on the road or online. 
    • Save payment details for future payments.
    • Send payment links for outstanding payments
    • Simple reconciliation

Medipass now enables users to create invoices that meet NDIS requirements which can be sent directly to plan managers, or, in the case where supports are self-managed, participants (or their family or other trusted party) for approval. This saves time and administrative burden as it becomes easier to take payment in more scenarios, and it’s faster to raise compliant invoices, with fewer errors and less follow up. 

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is vitally important to the Australian healthcare system. When fully implemented, it will make a significant difference to the lives of nearly half a million Australians living with a disability, as well as their family, friends, and support networks.

With a number of our team with first hand experience of the scheme, we know that navigating a complex system like NDIS can be confusing. That’s why we are really proud to play our part by making it easier for healthcare businesses who work with NDIS participants to get paid. 

Self-managed participant payments

Enjoy the flexibility of digital payments, whether you’re on the road or in practice. Medipass enables you to raise a request for payment from anywhere, anytime, directly with your participants or their families for in-home, after hours and out of consultation room scenarios. 

Plan managed participant invoicing

Track all your Plan Managed invoices in one reporting dashboard. It’s simple to send your invoices to NDIS Plan Managers and streamline your process of getting paid. There is no additional cost associated with NDIS Plan Managed invoicing, so you can raise as many invoices as you need as part of your Medipass provider account.  

Agency managed participant payment requests 

At this stage, we are not offering a solution for the submission of payment requests to the NDIA for agency managed participants. We are still working through new options to enable this feature hopefully later this year.

NDIS claiming is available in beta to select businesses on request. To request access, please sign up here: https://medipass.com.au/ndis/
