WorkCover Queensland has updated the Allied Health Services Tables of Costs effective 1 July 2022. Fees have been indexed in line with CPI and wage index increases and are now available on our Service provider fees page.
Feedback from self-insurers, allied health associations and providers has helped inform this year’s review. Changes include:
- the introduction of a dedicated Hand Therapy Services Table of Costs; and
- simplifying our fee model to provide clarity around treatment and invoicing expectations e.g. improved descriptions and rules when charging for travel, communication, incidentals, and hourly rates.
These tables reflect the maximum fees payable. Please update your systems to reflect the new fees, as invoices may not be adjusted once payment is made.
Prompt submission of invoices
The Workers’ Compensation and Rehabilitation Act 2003 specifies that accounts for medical and allied health treatment must be sent to the insurer promptly and within two months after the treatment is completed i.e. from the date of service. Please submit invoices within two months, as invoices submitted outside of this time may be refused.
If you have any queries, please contact us. For individual workers’ compensation questions, such as payment of invoices, please contact the relevant insurer (WorkCover or the self-insurer).
