Supporting recovery

Medical and allied health professionals play a critical role in influencing a patient's understanding of the health benefits of work and helping to achieve the best possible recovery and return to work outcome.

ReturnToWorkSA will cover reasonable and necessary health treatment and care costs related to a work injury, including:

  • medical specialists
  • physiotherapy
  • psychology
  • occupational therapy
  • speech pathology
  • osteopathy
  • chiropractors
  • exercise physiology.

We expect all service providers to work collaboratively with the case manager and other treating professionals involved in a worker's treatment and recovery. By providing the right support at the right time, you can help a worker recover from their injury and return to work and their life as quickly as possible.
