You're a Click Away From Being Job Ready for Your Next Locum. Find Out How!

Introducing the Provider Digital Access (PRODA) platform for doctors.  Its Medicare’s new online authentication system that has been developed to provide doctors with easy, secure access to specific government services, such as Health Professional Online Services (HPOS) and the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). Through PRODA the process of obtaining a Provider Number (PN) has never been simpler, as the need to download, fill out, and submit Medicare’s application forms manually has become a thing of the past.

With this new system, all you will need to secure a PN for yourself is 3 documents that will serve as proof of identification (e.g. a passport, a licence, and a Medicare card); as well as your new practice’s address and bank account details. With PRODA there’s no need to scan and upload any documents, as you only need to log the information from your ID documents as prompted, and it’s all automatically verified by the governments Document Verification Service (DVS). The PN is generated immediately, so there’s no need to fill out any paper work, and no waiting for Medicare to process the application. The process takes minutes and ensures you are ready for your next locum placement.

Once you’re set up for PRODA, ordering Provider Numbers can be done almost instantly online, meaning you’ll be best positioned to secure last minute locum roles without any processing delays!
