MRCA and DRCA clients who hold a DVA Health Card are able to access nursing services through the Community Nursing Program. The program provides community nursing services to address a client’s assessed clinical or personal care needs.

Where clients have complex injuries, or can be regarded as having high needs, the Community Nursing Program must be involved in assessing the client’s nursing and attendant care needs.
Making a claim for attendant care services
Claims for attendant care services must be investigated with reference to whether the services are reasonably required by the client and to ensure that the need for the services are due to the client’s service related injury or disease. Claims must be supported by documentary evidence from the client’s treating doctor, other suitably qualified medical or allied health professional or rehabilitation service provider.
