10.4 Medical Screening Form
When issuing the Acceptance of Liability standard letter, a Medical Screening Form for claiming compensation for a permanent impairment is included in the documentation.
If the client returns this form, it is considered to be a claim.
There will be some instances where a later application is made for PI payment but it is not clear that a client's condition will meet the criteria for payment under S24 (and consequently S27). Use of this form helps identify if that is the case and the form can be sent to the client at any time. Upon receipt of the form, procedures as per paragraph 24 should be undertaken.
