As dietitians, you can help our clients manage problems with their nutrition and dietary requirements resulting from their transport accident injuries.
|We can pay the reasonable costs of dietetic services in line with our fee schedule immediately after a transport accident when they are required as a result of a transport accident injury.|
We can pay for consultations and weight management programs where a patient is unable to independently maintain his or her pre-accident weight due to transport accident injuries. We can also pay for dietetic services for an at-risk patient whose dietary requirements cannot be satisfied by a normal diet because of the transport accident injury/condition.
We will review our client’s treatment to ensure it’s reasonable, clinically justified, outcome focused and in line with the Clinical Framework. We'll ask you and our client for information during these reviews and may temporarily stop funding treatment if we don’t receive it. When requested, you must complete the Allied health treatment and recovery plan and return it to us.
Reviews help us understand our client’s injuries, treatment needs and goals and how to best support them to get their life back on track. After a review we’ll let you and our client know the decision regarding further treatment.
For patients with a severe injury, the discussion, referral and approval of medication may form part of the independence planning process. If your patient's accident was prior to 14th February 2018 they may need to meet the medical excess before you can invoice the TAC for treatment.
Here’s how to work with our clients, manage billing and payments and find out what we can and cannot pay for.
