If you're in Australia, you probably know all about Medicare and Private Health Insurance! You're able to process Medicare claims and health fund claims through Cliniko via a program called Tyro Health (formerly Medipass). While we're not directly related to them, we've worked closely with them to allow for Cliniko to connect to Medicare and HealthPoint.
Below, we'll walk you through the steps to get your Cliniko account connected to Tyro Health:
(Note that you will need to have an existing Tyro Health account—if you don't, you can sign up here.) If you have questions about anything Tyro Health-related, they have a support site which we recommend checking out!
Integrate Cliniko with Tyro Health
As mentioned, you'll first need to connect Cliniko to your Tyro Health account. To do this, head to Settings, and then Integrations:
Look for the Medipass section (it'll be towards the top of the page):
Once there, you'll be able to actually set up the integration—more on that below! 👇
Understanding the Tyro Health integration
The Medipass API key: The API key is a 32 character string that you get from Medipass. If you need help finding yours, they have a handy guide for you how to set up your Cliniko integration.
The Medipass payment allocation: This is how payments from Medipass will be recorded in Cliniko. It affects how payments show up on invoices and reports. You can select any payment allocation type that is right for you. If you'd like to allocate Medipass payments to "Medicare", as per the screenshot below, you will need to add "Medicare" as a payment type. Learn how to add a new payment type here. Please note that the payment allocation fields for "Health fund" and "Credit card" are mandatory; the integration won't work unless you've set those.
Once you've completed your changes, click Save Medipass settings.
Adding Tyro Health provider numbers
Having your provider numbers in both Cliniko and Tyro Health will ensure that you can have a seamless experience when using both programs! If you're not sure how to enter your provider numbers into Tyro Health, you can follow their guide here.
