If you had an injury at work, you may be covered under WorkCover for Physiotherapy treatment.
Follow the steps below:
Step 1: Report the incident
Regardless of how minor the injury is, it needs to be reported to be reported to your manager or employer
In the report, be as thorough as you can, describing the events that led up to your injury as well as what happened immediately after.
This will give your employer and the medical and health practitioners that will be looking after you a better understanding of your nature of injury.
Step 2: See your GP
Once your manager or employer has been notified of the injury, you need see you GP.
You can visit any GP or your employer may ask you to visit a GP close to work.
Let your GP know that you will be making a workers’ compensation claim, as there are certain forms that need to filled out by the GP.
Your GP will perform an assessment and report on the extent of your injuries and determine the likelihood of returning to your previous hours and capacity at work.
Your GP may refer you for x-rays or scans depending on your injury.
Step 3: Physiotherapy
Once your employer lodges a claim with WorkCover, you will be issued with a claim number.
Before making your first appointment, you will need a claim number from WorkCover.
Let us know that your claim number at the time of making an appointment.
It is important for us to work with your doctor and case manager (from the insurance company) to ensure we are all on the same page to get you back to work.
Also, don’t forget to bring scan results or doctor referral letters for us to read and understand your injury.
