12.8.4 White Card Repatriation Health Card Treatment under the VEA and the MRCA

Where a claimant is entitled to:

  • a White Repatriation Health Card under subsections 85(1) or 85(2) of the VEA; and
  • a White Repatriation Health Card under section 279 or 280 of the MRCA,

the claimant should only be issued with one White Repatriation Health Card for all their MRCA and VEA conditions.

Please note, there is no legislative restriction on a claimant receiving a White Repatriation Health Card under subsections 85(1) or 85(2) of the VEA and reimbursement for treatment under Part 2 of Chapter 6 of the MRCA.  Therefore, delegates are encouraged to determine that the White Repatriation Health Card treatment path applies to the claimant under section 327.
