Hello, we’re Medipass

All applicants will be considered fairly, so if you feel in your bones that you’re right for this role (even if you’re worried you might not meet all the criteria), please apply!

We are a Melbourne based startup focused on digital health payment and claiming solutions, which connect patients, practitioners and payers in ways that drive system efficiency and better experiences of care. We’re backed by a big 4 bank and, amongst other prominent partners, are powering the next version of HICAPS – Australia’s leading healthcare quoting and claims payment network.

Working with health practitioners and leading practice management solutions, we’re putting control and cost transparency into the hands of individuals by assessing private health fund and statutory payer benefits at the point of appointment booking or service quotation. We help to reduce patient out of pocket expense and hassle by processing benefit claims and gap payments on the spot.
