HICAPS allows you to claim your health fund benefits on the spot. This means you only need to pay the difference between the treatment cost and the amount covered by your health fund, if applicable.
Once your treatment is complete, our team will process your claim through the HICAPS system, which will immediately calculate the benefit payable by your health fund. You can then pay the remaining balance, if any, using a variety of payment methods.

HICAPS is a secure system with high protection protocols for patient data safety. It goes beyond traditional security measures and complies with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), an internationally recognised set of guidelines for companies processing, storing, or transmitting credit card information. With its robust technology infrastructure, you can rest easy knowing your valuable patient information will be safeguarded from unauthorised access.
The HICAPS system also uses encryption to protect patient information during transmission, and all data is stored in a secure, encrypted format. Additionally, the HICAPS system requires all users to have unique login credentials. This means only authorised personnel can access patient information.
At TranscenDental Chatswood, we take the security of patient information very seriously. Our team is trained in maintaining patient confidentiality. We follow strict procedures so that all patient data is handled securely and in accordance with privacy laws and regulations.
HICAPS can integrate with electronic health records (EHRs) to help streamline administrative processes and improve the accuracy of patient information.
When a patient uses HICAPS to pay for a dental care service, the payment information is recorded in the HICAPS system. This information can then be transferred to the patient’s EHR so that payment information is accurately recorded and up-to-date. This can help improve the accuracy of billing and so that all payments are correctly processed and recorded.
In addition, HICAPS can also be used to generate invoices and receipts for patients, which can also be integrated with the patient’s EHR. This can help simplify administrative processes and reduce the time and effort required to manage patient billing and payment information.
At TranscenDental Chatswood, we use HICAPS to help improve the accuracy and efficiency of our payment processes. Our team is experienced in using HICAPS and can assist patients with any questions or concerns about integrating HICAPS with their EHR.
Yes, there are fees associated with using HICAPS, generally calculated as a percentage of the transaction amount. These fees are generally charged to the dental care provider rather than the patient.
The fees associated with using HICAPS can vary depending on the specific health fund policy and the individual dental care provider. Providers may negotiate their fees with HICAPS, which transaction volume payment amounts can influence and the specific health fund policy used.
Despite the fees associated with using HICAPS, many dental care providers still offer this payment option to their patients due to its convenience and efficiency.
At TranscenDental Chatswood, we are committed to providing our patients with a range of payment options, including HICAPS. With these, they can access the dental care they need in a fast, convenient, and affordable way.
HICAPS is a system that allows you to claim your health fund benefits for eligible services at the time of your appointment. You can also use it to claim under the Child Dental Benefits Schedule if your child is eligible. It works by electronically processing your claim and providing an immediate response about the level of benefit payable by your health fund.
However, HICAPS does not cover services that are not included in your health fund policy. In this case, you will need to pay the full cost of the service upfront, and then claim any applicable benefits from your health fund separately. If you’re unsure about what services are covered by your health fund, it’s always a good idea to check with your fund before your appointment.
At TranscenDental Chatswood, our experienced team can help you understand your health fund policy and how to use HICAPS to pay for dental care services.
HICAPS provides several ways to handle payment disputes or errors, should any arise. If there is an error in your payment, our team at TranscenDental Chatswood can easily void the transaction and process a new one. If the amount charged is incorrect, we can credit your account for the difference and reprocess the payment for the correct amount. In case a claim is rejected by your health fund, we can investigate the issue and resubmit the claim if needed. HICAPS also offers a chargeback process, which we can use to dispute any charges made by your health fund.
