Register as a provider with WorkCover Queensland
WorkCover provides support to a worker who has been injured at work to help them recover and make a quick and safe return to work.
Health providers play a vital role in this process and are responsible for:
- providing essential emergency and clinical care to the worker
- managing the worker's recovery and rehabilitation
- providing proper medical supervision during the return to work program, which can be with their existing employer or a host employer.
Treatment we cover
If we accept a claim, WorkCover will cover the cost of approved and reasonable medical treatment related to the injury. The worker must provide us with a work capacity certificate to ensure medical treatment and compensation is paid while they are injured. If the worker withdraws their claim, or elects to halt their claim at the reporting stage of claim determination (so the claim is registered for report purposes only), then payment for treatment is the responsibility of the worker.
We will only approve treatment provided by a registered or non-registered approved provider. The table of costs lists these providers. The Act uses the term 'registered', to refer to those professions covered by a health registration board.
A scheduled fee exists for most services however some are 'fee by negotiation'. These services must be approved by WorkCover before you proceed with treatment.
