HICAPS allows your pharmacy to submit claims on behalf of patients to their various programs. Minfos has integrated with HICAPS (formerly known as LanternPay) to allow this claiming to be actioned from Minfos using the prescription data. This integration removes the need for manual entry into another claiming program or the patient having to handle the claim themselves.

Note: TAC is the only program available at this stage, additional programs will be added in the future.

To set up HICAPS within Minfos, your pharmacy must first register themselves with HICAPS and the HICAPS Digital Claims feature to receive the required credentials. Once the credentials have been received, HICAPS can be enabled in Minfos via Shop Configuration. 

Note: A HICAPS terminal is not required to use this functionality within Minfos.
