Our team has extensive knowledge working with workcover patients, workers as well as employers. We help you to understand the workcover process, educate you on your injury and to work with you and your employer and doctor to get you back to work in a safe and timely manner.
If you have injured yourself at work and wish to claim your treatment under Workcover, it is important that you discuss this with your employer prior to attending the clinic for your appointment. You will need to complete an Incident Report Form at your work, and we will need to confirm by phone that liability has been accepted by your employer before we can process the account.
If we are unable to do this prior to the time of your treatment, you will need to pay for the consultation as a private patient until we can confirm that your claim has been accepted. You will then require to claim reimbursement directly from your employer.
To help make this process more efficient, we encourage all Workcover claimants to provide details of their claim prior to coming in for their first treatment.
