How Does HICAPS Work? | Oasis Dental Studio

BUPA Medibank Private HICAPS CBHS HCF NIB

At Oasis Dental Studio, we believe everyone deserves to smile with confidence.

But attaining a beautiful, healthy smile isn’t always in everyone’s budget. And when dental emergencies arise, the last thing you want is to risk your health because you don’t have the cash to spare for treatment.

That’s where HICAPS comes in.

If you’ve ever had to claim on extras services such as dental, you may already be familiar with HICAPS.

Here’s a rundown of what HICAPS is and how – together with your healthcare provider – it can help make your dental treatments more affordable.

What is HICAPS?

HICAPS (or Health Industry Claims and Payments Service) is Australia’s leading electronic claims and payments system for healthcare providers.

Formed in 1998, HICAPS makes it easier than ever to pay less for extras services from participating dentists, doctors, optometrists, chiropractors, and physiotherapists.

How does is work?

So, how does HICAPS work? It’s simple.

  1. You receive the bill for your dental treatment
  2. You give us your BUPA, Medibank Private, or other participating healthcare provider’s membership card
  3. We swipe it through our HICAPS machine to process your rebate at the time of payment
  4. Your healthcare provider’s contribution towards your bill is processed
  5. You just need to pay any remaining fees (if applicable).

Forget paying the total bill upfront and waiting days for a rebate. HICAPS ensures your health fund’s contribution is processed on the spot so you’re not out of pocket.
