When will the ability to process DVA online for psychiatrist be available?  At the moment we are paper based and have to post forms to DVA for processing.

Gavin have you asked DVA?  
(As osteopaths we claim for our DVA online, but we don't use FrontDesk's features for this.  You can do one without the other should you choose.  We do it this way because we don't have that many DVA clients.)

I asked DVA and they said to contact Smartsoft.  DVA now have an online Webclaim through their website which we will use once they set it up for us but we were hoping to use FrontDesk, to keep everything together (we can claim for psychologists in FD) but it is not set up for psychiatrists.

Hi Gavin

Unlike Medicare Online, which has one implementation for Allied Health and medical specialists, DVA requires a separate integration for medical specialists.  As our target market is the Allied Health industry we really need to gauge the demand for this as it is not a trivial implementation (no less than a $20,000 development) for something we feel very few of our user base would benefit from.

However, what we are happy to do is gauge the interest of this feature through this medium to help us make a decision on this matter.  I have converted this post into an 'Idea', so other users please 'Like' Gavin's post at the top right of the page if you would like to see this feature in the future.
