12.8.2 Treatment under the SRCA and the MRCA
Where a claimant is entitled to the same treatment under both:
- subsection 16(1) of the SRCA; and
- reimbursement for treatment under Part 2 of Chapter 6 of the MRCA,
treatment should only be provided under the MRCA. This will most commonly apply where a person has an aggravation of a SRCA condition accepted under the MRCA.
Please note, there is no legislative restriction on a claimant receiving compensation under subsection 16(1) of the SRCA and the same treatment with a White Repatriation Health Card under sections 279 or 280 of the MRCA. Therefore, delegates are encouraged to determine that the reimbursement treatment path applies to the claimant under section 327.
