As an speech pathologist, you play an important role in helping our clients with communication and swallowing issues resulting from their transport accident injuries.
|We have approved and can pay the reasonable costs of speech pathology immediately after a transport accident, when it is required as a result of a transport accident injury.|
Individual and group treatment and the provision of equipment are included.
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 services may form part of the independence planning process.
