DVA claiming for allied health professionals online
The Department of Veterans' Affairs (DVA) has launched a new online claims system for allied health providers servicing the veteran community.
It is aimed at allied health providers who only have a small number of DVA clients.
The system is currently only available through HPOS and is not integrated in practice management software. It is a 'smart forms'-based system designed to reduce paper claims sent in by post, but still requires manual input of claiming data.
Users will need a Medicare provider number and an individual public key infrastructure (PKI) certificate, available from DHS.
The new system will allow providers to receive an instant response to submitted claims, receive payment within two working days, access past DVA statements and download claiming histories. By using HPOS, which has a secure email facility, claimants can ask DHS questions about claims.
The department says medical claims will be able to be lodged through DVA Webclaim in the near future.
