Get Your Claims Processed on the Spot With HICAPS
HICAPS means Health Industry Claims and Payments Service. It is an electronic health claim system that streamlines the claiming and payment process for both health funds and providers. HICAPS allows patients to have their health insurance claims processed electronically at the time of service, meaning they can receive on-the-spot claims from their funds.
HICAPS not only saves you time and hassle but also helps you get the full benefit of your dental health insurance cover. This service is available to most Australian health funds and provides an efficient way to claim your dental health insurance benefits.

How Does HICAPS Work?
The HICAPS system is similar to an EFTPOS machine. To use HICAPS, simply present your health card at our front desk when you show up for your appointment. Then, you can begin treatment. At the end of your session, we will electronically process your claim with your health fund by swiping your card, just like an EFTPOS machine.
The claim will be processed instantly. In most cases, you will only need to pay the gap amount (if any) on the spot.The HICAPS terminal will print out a receipt for you to sign. This receipt is your proof of claim.
HICAPS means no more filling out forms or waiting for weeks to get reimbursed – you can just enjoy your shiny new smile. So when you visit West Perth Dental Centre, ask us about our HICAPS facilities – it will save you a lot of time and hassle.
