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.
