6.7.5 SRCA and MRCA conditions

Document

Should a SRCA condition be aggravated by MRCA service (i.e. eligible service after
1 July 2004) then the aggravated component is considered to be a MRCA condition e.g. medical treatment comes under the MRCA. For more information, see Chapter 12 of the MRCA Policy Manual.    

The operation of Chapter 25 of GARP M allows for injuries already compensated under the SRCA to be offset against the overall impairment and resultant payment under the MRCA PI provisions. The decision in James v Military Rehabilitation and Compensation Commission [2010] FCAFC 95 endorses the operation of this chapter. For more information, see Chapter 5 of the MRCA Policy Manual.
