As chiropractors, you play an important role in helping our clients recover from their transport accident injuries.
|We can pay the reasonable costs of your patient’s chiropractic treatment in line with our fee schedule, without prior approval, immediately after a transport accident when it is required as a result of a transport accident injury.|
Patient consultations, travel, x-rays, exercise programs and equipment are also covered, with some restrictions.
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.
