Electronic funds transfer of bulk billing and Department of Veterans' Affairs payments

Health professionals now receive bulk bill and Department of Veterans' Affairs payments through electronic funds transfer.

We no longer send cheques for bulk bill and Department of Veterans' Affairs  payments to health professionals.

You must lodge your bank account details with us to receive payment of your bulk bill and Department of Veterans' Affairs claims through Electronic Funds Transfer.

If you practise at more than 1 location, you need to submit bank account details for each location.

We will process your claims and pay you when you give us your bank account details.

  1. if you use Medicare Easyclaim, use the Provider registration for Electronic Funds Transfer payments form (HW029)
