On 11 April 2019 the Australian Government assumed a caretaker role, with an election to be held 18 May 2019.

Medical expenses

Comcare has set payment amounts for all medical expenses based on fees recommended by various professional associations and other Australian workers’ compensation jurisdictions.

If your medical provider charges more than Comcare’s set rates you may not be reimbursed the full amount charged. You should ask your medical provider whether they charge more than Comcare’s rates.

In limited circumstances, Comcare may reimburse more than its stated limit, for example, if a person lives in a remote area and only has access to practitioners who charge more than Comcare’s rates.

For information on payment limits/rates that guide the amount Comcare will reimburse for medical services, please see Rates and reimbursements.
