work safe chiropractor

WHO CAN CLAIM?

  • Anyone who is injured at work can claim treatment costs. 

DO I NEED A REFERRAL?

 

  • WorkSafe considers chiropractic to be a primary contact service.

  • A referral for treatment alone from a medical practitioner is therefore not required.

  • If, however, you are claiming for weekly payments (money paid to you for time off work) or are not able to perform your pre-injury employment, you must have a certificate of capacity.

HOW DO I OBTAIN A CERTIFICATE OF CAPACITY?

 

  • The initial certificate must be completed by a medical practitioner (your general practitioner, surgeon, or psychiatrist) if you need time off work or are not able to perform your pre-injury employment.

  • All subsequent certificates can be completed by a medical practitioner or physiotherapist, chiropractor or osteopath. You cannot complete it yourself.

  • It is a crucial document in the claims process and activates the support services you need. It is essential to help you return to normal life as soon as possible.
