8.7.2 Travel provisions to attend treatment

Part 4 of Chapter 6 of the MRCA provides for the payment of reasonable costs incurred by persons for travel and accommodation relating to their treatment. The MRCC may approve a person to act as an attendant to a patient requiring treatment and reimburse reasonable travel and accommodation costs incurred by the attendant.

There is no liability for costs incurred for travel and accommodation where a person travels outside of Australia for the main purpose of receiving treatment.

The detailed travel provisions of the MRCA are covered separately in Chapter 9 of this Manual.
