Workcover, NDIS & TAC Psychology Services in St Kilda, Melbourne

What is WorkCover Insurance?

WorkCover insurance covers employers for the cost of benefits if employees are injured or become ill because of their work. It is compulsory for Victorian employers and is funded by their contributions.

WorkCover insurance may cover:
  • Replacement of lost income
  • Medical and rehabilitation treatment costs
  • Legal costs
  • Lump sum compensation in the event of a serious injury.

If you are eligible you can request psychological services to be funded. However you must have accompanying paperwork for your first session.

Accidents that happen in Victoria.

You can make a claim if:

  • You, or someone you represent, was involved in an accident caused by the driving of a car, motorcycle, bus, train or tram, and
  • You, or someone you represent, was injured or died in the accident.

Pedestrians and cyclists who were injured or died in accidents caused by the driving of a car, motorcycle, bus, train or tram are also covered.

As part of your funding you may access a psychologist if you are suffering a psychological injury as a result of your accident. You will need approval from TAC and provide us with the accompanying paperwork.

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) gives people with a disability greater choice and control over the support they receive. It provides eligible people with funding based on their personal needs, goals and aspirations. Early intervention supports can also be provided for eligible people with disability or children with developmental delay. Launched by the Australian Federal Government in 2013, the NDIS is similar to Medicare in that the costs for disability care are shared amongst the community.

If you have a self managed or plan managed fund, we are able to see you under your NDIS plan. Remember to consult with your case worker or plan manager, and supply the necessary paperwork before your first session 🙂
