WORKCOVER & T.A.C.
We are happy to treat patients who are workcover patients and transport accident commission patients. If your claim has been accepted AND you have a claim number, please provide this to our reception team and we will bill these third parties directly. If you do not have a claim number or your claim is yet to be accepted, we ask that you pay for your consultation and claim a refund from workcover or T.A.C. until your claim is accepted.
We are happy to accept D.V.A patients and ask you to bring your D.V.A card with you. You may also have your chiropractic treatment paid for by the D.V.A. but you must have a D.V.A. gold card and a G.P’s referral.
PAY AT CONSULTATION PLEASE
We ask that all accounts are paid at the time of the consultation. An account keeping fee of $5 is added for accounts taken.
