Changes to multiple patient verification checks
9th October 2018
Medicare Australia has made changes to the multiple patient verification check service in Health Professional Online Services (HPOS).
From 8 September, the new daily maximum limit for multiple patient verification checks is 50 patients per upload. GPs can still only upload one request per day.
The change is in response to a recommendation from the independent review of Health Providers access to Medicare Card Numbers.
