9.10 Communication With Other Sections

Where an offsetting Delegate is responsible for the preparation of a section 30 or 76 notice, they are to liaise with the appropriate compensation recovery officer in the health section and income support section.  Section 93 of the VEA contains the legislative basis for the recovery of treatment costs incurred by the Department from either the patient or the person liable to pay the other compensation.  Part IIIC of the VEA contains the legislative basis for the recovery of compensation affected income support payments.  If unsure of whether section 93 and/or Part IIIC provisions apply refer the file to the appropriate officer/s in other sections.  When answering an enquiry from a veteran or their representative it is imperative that all monies, which may be recoverable under the VEA, are fully explained.  DVA Fact Sheets are useful for providing general advice on the offsetting and recovery provisions of the VEA.  Refer HSV 100, IS101, DP 81 and DP 82.
