As optometrists, you play an important role in helping our clients recover from their transport accident injuries.
|We can pay the reasonable costs of optometric services, without prior approval, immediately after a transport accident when they are required as a result of a transport accident injury.|
Consultations, computerised perimetry, spectacles and contact lenses and replacement glasses are 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 also complete certificates of capacity to assess and certify your patient’s capacity for work. If your patient's accident was prior to 14th February 2018 they may need to meet the medical excess before you can invoice the TAC for treatment.
