Changes to multiple patient verification checks

7 September 2018

We’ve changed the number of multiple patient verification checks you can make in HPOS each day.

We’ve made changes to the multiple patient verification check service in HPOS. 

From 8 September, the new daily maximum limit for multiple patient verification checks is 50 patients per upload. You can still only upload one request per day.   

We made this change to respond to a recommendation from the Independent Review of Health Providers’ Access to Medicare Card Numbers (the Review).
