Medicare Billing Assurance Toolkit

A toolkit of checklists, templates and suggestions to make it easier for you to manage risks that inadvertently cause incorrect billing under Medicare

We’ve designed the Medicare Billing Assurance Toolkit (the Toolkit) to help practices adopt, maintain and improve strategies to reduce the risk of inaccurate Medicare billing in practices.

The Toolkit contains:

  • a Medicare billing assurance checklist
  • systems-based Medicare billing assurance suggestions
  • templates, sample documents and evaluation questionnaires to support a Medicare billing assurance system in your practice
  • information on Medicare resources

The Toolkit is the result of extensive collaboration with health peak bodies including the Australian Medical Association (AMA), the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP), the Australian Association of Practice Managers, the Rural Doctors Association of Australia, Allied Health Professions Australia, and Optometry Australia.

It was tested by volunteer practices between February and June 2014.
