5.3 Payment for Medical Treatment Costs

Page
Last amended 
19 October 2016

Where a person is on a medical management rehabilitation plan to assist them to manage their accepted conditions, the cost any treatment for the conditions should be met via the DVA Health Card system, not through the rehabilitation plan. Treatment includes massage therapy, physiotherapy, chiropractic, osteopathic and naturopathic services.  

If the client does not have a DVA Health Card, one should be issued.

Where a person has been incorrectly receiving treatment services under their rehabilitation program, DVA delegates are required to work with the rehab provider and the clients GP to transition their treatment to be provided under the DVA Health Card system.
