    Vocational counselling is a WorkCover approved service, but only if provided by occupational rehabilitation providers approved for that purpose. Approved occupational rehabilitation providers should contact WorkCover to determine the appropriate fee.

    WorkCover insurers require an item number on all accounts for outpatient services (item numbers are listed in the table above).

    Service provided Fee
    Registered Medical Practitioners

    Registered Medical Practitioners providing services to compensable patients in the Accident and Emergency/Casualty (non-admitted) or Outpatient Departments may charge a consultation fee in accordance with the Commonwealth Medicare Benefits Schedule.

    For medical practitioners who are employees of a hospital (including HMOs and registrars), the hospital must invoice the relevant third party payer (e.g. WorkCover insurer) for the service

    Services delivered in the emergency department of any public hospital should be invoiced by the public hospital using the non-admitted item codes. Medical services should be invoiced using PUB/PMF 104 - initial and PUB/PMF 105 - subsequent.

    Vocational counselling is a WorkCover approved service, but only if provided by occupational rehabilitation providers approved for that purpose. Approved occupational rehabilitation providers should contact WorkCover to determine the appropriate fee.

    WorkCover insurers require an item number on all accounts for outpatient services (item numbers are listed in the table above).

    Service provided Fee
    Registered Medical Practitioners

    Registered Medical Practitioners providing services to compensable patients in the Accident and Emergency/Casualty (non-admitted) or Outpatient Departments may charge a consultation fee in accordance with the Commonwealth Medicare Benefits Schedule.

    For medical practitioners who are employees of a hospital (including HMOs and registrars), the hospital must invoice the relevant third party payer (e.g. WorkCover insurer) for the service

    Services delivered in the emergency department of any public hospital should be invoiced by the public hospital using the non-admitted item codes. Medical services should be invoiced using PUB/PMF 104 - initial and PUB/PMF 105 - subsequent.
