Amid this year’s challenges, we’re grateful for your efforts to ensure our clients receive the care they need. Here are three important reminders to support your work with TAC clients.
The TAC will extend funding of temporary telehealth services previously scheduled to end on 30 September until further notice, giving clients the ongoing convenience and flexibility of accessing health services from home.
From 17 August our approval requirements will depend on whether a treatment is delivered within the first 90 days of the client’s accident, or after 90 days. TAC clients can access up to 6 TAC funded psychology or neuropsychology treatment sessions without contacting us for approval first, if sessions are delivered within the first 90 days of the client’s accident.
Starting 17 August 2020, our approval requirements will depend on whether a treatment or service is delivered within the first 90 days of the client’s accident, or after 90 days.
The COVID-19 outbreak presents an opportunity to talk to people with disability about emergency planning and preparedness. You can help encourage your clients to be prepared for emergencies well before they happen.
We’re grateful for the efforts of health and service providers to support TAC clients during the COVID-19 outbreak, and for your patience as we’ve adapted to remote working. Here we provide clarity on the issues raised most often in recent weeks.
Each month TAC providers successfully submit tens of thousands of invoices through LanternPay. If you’ve not yet used LanternPay, now is an excellent time to give it a try.
Health practitioners can receive specialist training in pain management through a free program offered by the Western Victoria Primary Health Network.
We are now preparing to implement TAC telehealth item codes for GPs, medical specialists and a broad range of allied health services. The new telehealth item codes will align to your current TAC face-to-face rate.
