Financial support for medical treatment - claims made before 1 July 2015
One of the big changes with the introduction of the Return to Work scheme is that the duration of financial support for medical expenses has changed for most people.
If you made a claim before 1 July 2015, the information below details payment of medical treatment costs and related medical expenses available under your employer's work injury insurance.
Are you a medical practitioner or allied health provider?
If your patient's treatment is funded by the Return to Work scheme, please speak with them to clarify when their financial support ends. They may need help to transition to community, state, commonwealth or privately funded services if ongoing treatment is required. More information is available in the Return to Work scheme for health practitioners brochure (PDF, 661 KB).
Your patient’s insurance case manager can answer any questions you have about the impact of these changes
