WorkCover and DVA podiatry

Looking for a WorkCover podiatrist in Brisbane?

Pivotal Motion Podiatry can help you get back onto your feet.

WorkCover

WorkCover Queensland offers insurance and compensation for those who have been injured in the workplace, or as a result of working. Like other insurers, claims must be reported for support, which can often be a hassle if injured or sick. Thankfully, Pivotal Motion Podiatry can help your injured feet or foot.

Provided patients have a current WorkCover medical certificate and approved claim number, Pivotal Motion Podiatry can directly invoice WorkCover Queensland. If a claim is pending approval, patients will be billed and encouraged to seek reimbursement once their claim has been approved. It is better to seek treatment and let us assist with the WorkCover process than to postpone treatment whilst you are injured. When booking an appointment, patients are asked to talk to our friendly reception staff about their specific WorkCover situation to ensure that your case is handled correctly.

If you have any questions in regards to the process of making a WorkCover claim, feel free to ring WorkCover on 1300 362 128 or have a look at their helpful webpage: https://www.worksafe.qld.gov.au/rehab-and-claims/injuries-at-work/making-a-claim.

DVA

The Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) issues health cards to veterans of the Australian defence force, their war widows or widowers and dependents. With these health cards, you may be eligible for different pensions and benefits from the Department of Veterans’ Affairs.

Under the DVA initiative, clients are able to access podiatry services that may include but are not limited to: diagnosis, routine maintenance, physical therapy on your feet, selected soft tissue surgeries. Next to this, it may also include the prescription of orthotics, medical grade footwear or footwear modifications.

If you are a DVA Gold Card holder, the Department will fund all clinically necessary podiatry appointments and services. When you are a DVA White Card holder, DVA covers the same services as the Gold Car holders, but they must be for treatment of war caused or service related injury or disability.
