To align with current industry ICT standards MedicareAustralia is replacing the current Adaptors with Web Services, which will require a shift in the way transmissions are sent to the agency from the Client System software.
With the cessation of all PKI (SHA-1) certificates effective March 2022, MedicareAustralia has adopted the PRODA
organisational authentication model to send and receive Web Service requests/responses to and from the
Providers using the current Client Adaptors need to activate Medicare Online Claiming via PRODA (Provider Digital Access).
To do this follow these steps:
Before you can register an organization in PRODA, you must ensure that:
- You have registered an individual PRODA account
- You are an Associate or Authorized contact for the organization on the Australian Business Register (ABR)
- Your individual PRODA account name matches your name as recorded on the ABR.
