What the courses cover

Medicare and medical billing can be a complicated and frustrating area to get your head around, so we have designed the essentials pack courses to give you much more than the basics, but not so much that you lose interest.

There is nothing like the essentials pack courses anywhere in Australia. This is a first!

What you will not find in any of our medical billing courses is ways to maximise Medicare, or ‘pack and stack’ item numbers, both of which are inconsistent with the spirit and design of Medicare’s honour based billing system.

These courses are the first in Australia to present law, facts and evidence and have been designed to help make your understanding and comprehension of medical billing feel effortless.

Medicare is widely regarded as one of the best health systems in the world and if you are interested in preserving it for the generations of doctors following behind you, these courses will start you on a path to good medical billing practice.

The Medical Billing Essentials Pack consists of the following short courses:

  1. Who pays for health?
  2. Introduction to Medicare and medical billing
  3. Ethical medical billing and the Medicare Benefits Schedule
  4. Bulk billing, Medicare’s heart beat
  5. Provider number law and practice
  6. The rules of referrals – includes locum billing rules
  7. Medical billing in public hospitals
  8. Patient categories and statuses for medical billing – not as easy as you might think!
  9. Record keeping requirements for Australian health professionals

How the courses are conducted

The courses have been designed to be completely independent and self-paced meaning there is no need for intervention from a trainer.
