There are some items that, depending on the circumstances of the case, can be approved under either S16 or S39 of the SRCA. That is, the item may be considered either a medical aid or appliance or a rehabilitation aid or appliance.

  • the principles for the provision of alterations, modifications and aids and appliances;
  • the process for considering requests for alterations, modifications, and aids and appliances;
  • examples of specific aids and appliances approval processes; and
  • evidence that is required to support such requests.
