As podiatrists, you play an important role in helping our clients recover from feet and ankle injuries after their transport accident.
|We can pay the reasonable costs of your patient’s podiatry services, without prior approval, immediately after a transport accident when they are required as a result of a transport accident injury.|
Patient consultations, biomechanical examinations, orthomechanical services and procedures and x-rays are covered. Basic equipment is also covered.
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.
As part of your patient’s treatment, you can complete certificates of capacity to assess and certify your patient’s capacity for work.For patients with a severe injury, the discussion, referral and approval of services may form part of the independence planning process.
If your patient's accident was prior to 14 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.
