At our practice we have two Doctors that deal with WorkCover Qld.
Dr Sidenko and Dr Manuel provide work capacity certificates to be used in the determination and management of the claim. The work capacity certificate also acts as a communication tool between insurers, employers, rehabilitation and return to work coordinators, allied health providers and medical practitioners due to the information supplied.
It is preferred that WorkCover visits are paid up front as claiming sometimes is not approved and this causes a debt for the practice and the patient. When making an appointment to see the Doctor it would be appreciated if the reception staff were made aware of the visit being for WorkCover and not just a general appointment as more time is needed to be allocated for paperwork.
