11.2 DVA-specific requirements for approved rehabilitation service providers

From 1 July 2016, to work with DVA clients, approved rehabilitation service provider organisations and their consultants also need to satisfy a number of DVA requirements. These requirements ensure that DVA clients have access to the best possible professional team, and also support providers through providing training about DVA’s programs and clients.

11.3.2 Selecting Rehabilitation Providers for clients residing overseas

Where clients residing overseas are required or wish to participate in a rehabilitation program, there are two possible ways to manage their program and deliver rehabilitation services:

  • using a rehabilitation provider in Australia; or
  • engaging a suitable overseas provider.

In each instance, the first step is to organise a referral to an Australian provider for a rehabilitation assessment. The assessment can be done with the client by skype, video conference or telephone.
