Making the complex simple

We enable choice and control for participants, providers, partners and programs, enabling better outcomes for all Australians who receive support funding.


The future of claim payments is here

We started LanternPay because we knew there was a better way to manage claim payments. Since 2016, we've been motivated by a simple objective – to create a claim payments platform that offers greater choice and control to participants, providers, partners and programs across the health, care, disability, insurance and ageing sectors. We strive to make the complex simple, ultimately enabling better outcomes for all who provide and receive support funding.

"Lack of innovation has caused legacy claim payment processes to remain complex and inefficient. LanternPay's goal is to drive provider participation and deliver true choice in consumer directed care by profoundly changing the experience, cost structure and transparency of the claiming process."

Geoff Austen, Co-Founder & Managing Director

Current health and care payment processes are not designed for the new world of consumer choice and control, and result in complexity, inefficiency and uncertainty for providers and schemes. We're changing that.

We are an emerging technology company and creators of a digital claim payment platform that connects and powers new kinds of interactions between key industry players. Using open, cloud-based technology to deliver easy, instant invoicing, claiming and payment to the point of service for providers, approvers and programs, we are standardising and simplifying the complexity of claim payments.

We have always been passionate about building technology solutions that make a positive contribution to Australian communities. Part of the InLoop Group, one of Australia's most established fintech companies, LanternPay was founded in 2016 in Sydney. Since then, LanternPay has become the digital claim payments solution for the Transport Accident Commission of Victoria and we are deeply engaged with other government and private insurers to address their claim payments needs.

Through a combination of technological innovation, strategic partnerships and integrations, LanternPay will play a key role in transforming a large segment of the Australian economy.
