11.3.9 Reimbursing costs incurred in travelling to a section 57 Medical Examination
Please see chapter 26 in the Medical Treatment Manual for the circumstances in which costs associated with travel to obtain medical treatment can be paid under the SRCA. The same considerations listed in Section 16 apply under section 57, except that the minimum round trip of 50 km which applies under section 16 is not relevant.
Also, Delegates should ensure that any costs associated with payment for an examination under the provisions of section 57 are paid using the “General Medical Exam” codes within Defcare and not under section 16(6) for travel to attend treatment.
