As pharmacists, you play an important role in helping our clients recover from their transport accident injuries.
|We can pay the reasonable costs of medication prescribed by a medical practitioner or dentist, without prior approval, immediately after a transport accident when it is required as a result of a transport accident injury.|
Privately prescribed medications that are clinically appropriate for the accident-related injury or illness, where there is no readily available alternative on the PBS, as well as some over the counter items when recommended by a medical practitioner or dentist.
We will review our client’s medication to ensure it’s reasonable, clinically justified, outcome focused and in line with the Clinical Framework. We'll ask our client and their health professionals for information during these reviews and may temporarily stop funding medication if we don’t receive it.
Reviews help us understand our client’s injuries, treatment needs, their goals and how to best support them get their lives back on track. After a review we’ll let you and our client know the decision regarding further medication.
For customers with a severe injury, the discussion, referral and approval of medication may form part of the independence planning process.
Here’s how to work with us, manage billing and payments and find out what we can and cannot pay for.
