Last updated 3 July 2015

The Department of Human Services (DHS), Medicare processes claims for health providers on behalf of DVA. You can claim using a payment method that suits you.

Welcome to Webclaim

Webclaim is a free service designed primarily to help dental, optical and allied health providers who only have a small number of DVA clients.

DVA Webclaim lets you lodge dental, optical and allied health claims (hospital and community nursing claims can not be lodged through this channel) and will provide instant responses to most claims. You can also access online payment statements for processed claims.

What do I need as a provider?

To access DVA Webclaim, health professionals need a Medicare provider number, an individual Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) certificate and a computer with an internet connection.

If you have a current Medicare provider number you can apply for your Individual PKI Key through the Department of Human Services PKI page. Just follow the steps and fill out your Application for a PKI Certificate Form (PDF 183 KB). Once you have your Individual PKI Key then you are ready to commence DVA Webclaim.

If you have an individual PKI certificate which has lapsed you can call Department of Human Services eBusiness on:1800 700 199.

DVA Webclaim is available on the Department of Human Services (DHS) Health Professional Online Services (HPOS) portal .
