Once you've signed up for Tyro Health Online, you can activate Medicare and DVA by following these steps.

Then click the "Get started" button and follow the prompts to complete the activation process.

Follow the prompts to enter all the required information to set up Medicare Online and determine whether the Medicare Online application forms are required by completing the agreement form requirement check.

2. Download your Medicare Online application form/s (if required)

Once you've completed the activation process, click "Download application form" to download your pre-filled Medicare Online forms. These forms must be filled out and sent to Medicare to register your providers for online claiming.

Once you've downloaded the forms you can see how to complete these by clicking the "View instructions for completing the forms" option. This will show you what details need to be completed, and how to submit these to Medicare. You can also find the same instructions here.

4. Submit these forms to Medicare and wait five business days

After submitting the Medicare Online registration forms the Medicare team will take up to five business days to complete the set up. Generally they will only contact you if there are any issues with your registration. If five business days go by and you haven't heard anything, you can begin submitting claims online.

🚨NOTE: Do not submit any claims in Tyro Health Online until Medicare has had time to process your application. Claims submitted too early won't be processed and you'll need to submit them again.🚨
If you've waited out the five business days after submitting the application forms you're ready to start submitting Medicare and DVA claims πŸ˜€
