You must obtain a letter of referral from a recognised medical practitioner. This is normally from either your local GP, or another specialist. Please be aware that whilst a physiotherapist can make a recommendation, this is not recognized by Medicare.

What to bring to your appointment:

  • Medicare card ,Veteran Affairs card
  • WorkCover approved claim number
  • Referral letter from your GP, family physician or other doctor
  • Copies of operation records, medical records, X-Rays, MRIs, CT scans and so on from prior doctor visits
  • If you have seen a physiotherapist, please bring a progress letter from the therapist if possible.
