Recently we've had a number of questions about our Online Claim Form and how to make a claim online.  So we've updated our initial blog from April about how to use our Online Claim Form, including where to find it. So before you make a claim have a look at our updated step-by-step guide to make it easier for you to complete an online claim:

 

1. Locate your fillable claim form

2. Download the fillable claim form & Save it to your computer FIRST

3. Open it with your PDF reader programs & Fill it

4. Submit your claim

 

 

step-by-step to claim

 

Locate your fillable claim form

 

It's important that you know where to find the claim form. With HealthCarePlus, you can get access to our form in just two clicks. It is so simple, all you need to do is visiting our Home page, then click on the "Make a claim" button on the top-right hand corner.

Download & Save the form to your computer FIRST before completing it

 

We suggest that you first download the PDF form to your computer or network drive, and then open it with Adobe Reader or Foxit Reader and fill it.

Note: For Chrome & Mac users, DO NOT use the preview program to fill in the PDF form because Safari & Chrome’s built-in PDF viewer does not support saving of updates made to fillable PDF docs.

Open the form with your PDF reader program & Fill it

 

Once you download and save it to your computer, you can easily fill in the form with your details. By default your web browser might open the form in the browser window. For those who use Chrome & Mac, filling the claim form in your browser will not save properly.

 

So, we recommend: After downloading the fillable form, open & fill it with PDF readers in your computer, then SAVE it. To do it, you just need to right click on the PDF file and choose open with Adobe Acrobat or Foxit Reader.

Notes to avoid delayed claim payments


Please make sure you do the following to avoid delayed claim payments:

  • Ensure all relevant sections of the claim form are completed 
  • We recommend that all scanned or photographed receipts are legible and are itemised, showing the date of treatment, treatment provider, patient treated,description of health services received and fees charged.
  • If you have a receipt for $100 or more make sure it's accompanied by an itemised bill not just an EFTPOS or credit card receipt
  • It's important to retain your original receipts until claim settlement in the event they are required to assess your claim
