Health Industry Claims and Payments Service, an ancillary health claims and payments service and a wholly owned subsidiary of National Australia Bank, has purchased an additional 4,000 Optimum T4210 multi-application payment terminals from Hypercom, a provider of electronic payment services.
The latest purchase brings to more than 8,000 the total number of high security T4210s Health Industry Claims and Payments Service (HICAPS) has ordered in 2008, said Hypercom.
The T4210 terminal will enable HICAPS to have a service in the allied healthcare claims system which covers providers such as dentists, optometrists, physiotherapists and other non-general practitioners. The terminal enables providers to process payment card transactions, private health fund claims and Medicare Easyclaim on the same terminal which is a first for the Australian market, according to HICAPS.
Greg Millane, CEO of HICAPS and general manager of NAB Health, said: The T4210 enables HICAPS to offer a single electronic transaction terminal in the allied health claim space and the most advanced and convenient electronic claims and payment solution in Australia. The T4210 was selected for its enhanced security and ability to handle multiple transactions.
TK Cheung, managing director of Hypercom Asia Pacific, said: HICAPS selection is the latest in a series of market wins that we’ve gained for our high security technology and another clear indicator that Hypercom is the payment provider of choice for merchants globally.
