Coronavirus information for TAC clients
From 11.59pm Thursday 27 May until 11.59pm on Thursday 3 June, circuit breaker actions are in place for all of Victoria.
New changes have been introduced to slow the spread of the recent outbreak of COVID-19 by reducing the number of people leaving their homes and moving around Victoria.
This means that you cannot leave your home unless you are doing it for one of the five following reasons:
- shopping for necessary goods and services
- care and caregiving
- authorised work and permitted study
- to get a COVID-19 vaccination
For the most up to date information and advice visit the Department of Health and Human Services website.
If you suspect you may have coronavirus, please call the Department of Health and Human Services dedicated hotline on 1800 675 398. Only use Triple Zero (000) for emergencies.
Information in your language
If you need COVID-19 information in your own language, please visit the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) website for translated information.
The Health translations website also has the definitive collection of COVID-19 resources that is updated daily. These include critical fact sheets, videos, and posters currently available in 70 languages. You can access these resources here.
We can also arrange an interpreter for appointments related to your transport accident. Find out more here.
Don't put your health on hold
We understand it may be more difficult to get medical care and treatment at the moment. Please try to keep regular appointments to support your recovery.
Find out more in your own language
Despite the challenges presented by the COVID-19 outbreak, it is very important that you keep up your medical care and treatment. If you wait this could delay your recovery.
You can now do some medical appointments over the phone or video call using a service called telehealth. The TAC can pay for the telehealth appointments you need to help your recovery from your transport accident. Find out more about telehealth.
Look after your mental health and wellbeing
There are great digital mental health services available to help you when you need information and support. We've put together a range of resources that are available for all TAC clients.
Psychologists from the TAC's Clinical Panel have also put together some information about how to look after your mental health during the pandemic.
Due to the current situation we have some different options for how you can contact us.
We appreciate your patience and ask if you can minimise repeat calls or requests about the same enquiry.
1. Use our myTAC app or web portal to send and receive messages. You can also send us documents, receipts and requests for reimbursement
2. Use the Contact us online form
3. If you have a direct line for your TAC claims manager you can contact them on that number.
Phone lines - urgent calls only
We recommend that you only call 1300 654 329 for urgent matters. If we are unable to answer your call you will be prompted to leave a message. Our staff are monitoring all messages and will call you back as soon as possible.
