What is Worker's Compensation?
“The Western Australian workers’ compensation and injury management scheme is designed to help workers return to work successfully following a work-related injury or illness.” – WorkCoverWA
Physiotherapy services may be provided to worker’s who have sustained a workplace injury. There is a strong body of evidence to show early and accurate physiotherapy intervention can reduce the injury length and promote early return to work
Modern Physiotherapy is dedicated to providing evidence informed practice to all clients. Within the Workers Compensation sector in particular, we adopt a strong Bio-Psycho-Social approach in order to facilitate early recovery and return to work.
How do I get started?
You may contact our clinic to make an appointment once you have adhered to the Worker’s Compensation guidelines of your work place.
You will need the following details in order to start your physiotherapy treatment under Worker’s Compensation:
- Claim acceptance letter from your relevant insuring company from work
- Claim details – including claim number, case manager name and contact details
- GP referral letter
Who is responsible for bills?
Modern Physiotherapy will liaise with your case manager from the relevant insurance company to seek approval of physiotherapy treatment plans under the WorkCoverWA rates. Once approval has been granted, all fees will be directed to the insuring company with no out of pocket expense for clients. However, any treatment outside of the proposed plan will be the responsibility of the client.
