Work and Vehicle Accident injury management in Bendigo:
Live in Bendigo (and surrounds) and had an accident at work or on the road and now on WorkCover or TAC ? Suffering from a musculoskeletal injury such as a back, neck or shoulder injury? If you have a WorkCover or TAC claim, Osteopaths are recognised as service providers for injury management in Australia.
WorkCover and Osteopathy:
You will need a referral from a General Practitioner to see an osteopath for a workplace injury and approval from your claim case manager. Please make sure to discuss this with your Case Manager before booking with us. WorkCover may place caps on the rebate or limit the number of sessions you can have which is good you us and you to know before hand. During your treatment schedule we may liaise with your GP and case manager on your progression, make recommendations on return to work capabilities and advise if further treatment is needed.
At Bendigo Osteo you pay for each osteopathic appointment upfront, then we provide you with required paperwork and you claim your rebate with Work Cover directly.

TAC and Osteopathy:
Similarly, if you have had a vehicle accident you may be eligible for rebates with TAC. You will need a GP referral along with approval from your case manager. Please bring your claim number, referral, and contact details for your case worker at your first appointment. Remember too that you are required to pay out of pocket at our clinic. We will provide you with the paperwork so you can obtain a rebate directly with TAC.
