Department of Veteran’s Affairs (DVA) Clients
The Wellness Team sees a number of DVA clients and servicing those who served us.
The DVA Appointment Process
Our Physiotherapists, Exercise Physiologist and Dietican are more than happy to see and treat DVA clients. We also have some clinical conditioning classes which may prove beneficial!
All DVA clients require a referral from their GP regardless of White Card (this referral needs to specify treatment area), Gold Card or TPI Status.
Number of Sessions
DVA recently made some changes to the treatment cycle, which only allows 12 sessions before requiring another referral. After your 12th appointment, your provider will write a letter to your GP which will outline the treatment undertaken and future plans. You will need to visit your GP again to get another referral. There is not limit to number of referrals or number of service types (Physio, Exercise Physiology, etc). (This does not apply to TPI Clients).
We will bill these appointments straight to DVA – with no out of pocket cost for you.
