How to make a claim

When it comes to medical claims, most doctors will usually bill your health fund directly. If this doesn't happen you can use electronic claiming through the government's ECLIPSE system or submit a claim form via email or post.

You can make many of your extras claims automatically by swiping your onemedifund membership card with your treatment provider. Where electronic claiming is not available you can lodge your claim online, or fill out and submit a claim form (along with your receipts) by post or email.
