A Tyro terminal integrated with your Clinic to Cloud practice can be used to claim on behalf of the patient with Easyclaim. Easyclaim requests the immediate processing of a claim and, if successful, the rebate is credited to the patient's savings or cheque account (not credit) when they present their EFTPOS card.
Note: There are a number of Medicare restrictions that prevent Tyro Easyclaim from successfully processing some claims (see below).
If an Easyclaim transaction is rejected it may be that the MBS items you selected are affected by these restrictions. In that case, click the Save & Claim or Claim button instead.
