I think $250 would be the gazetted rate + certificate of capacity, case conference and another equipment or aid provided (such as ice, voltaren etc).Work in insurance
The Practice Manager's at the Medical Centres set a $250 fee normally now the catch is if your wife pays that then the nominal insurer likely icare however could be another AP then she will only be reimbursed the gazetted rate e.g. $140
You are better going to a gp who is not.going to charge a one off fee for workers comp not all practices do that it is a cash grab on there behalf.
Obviously once you have a certificate the claim can get lodged with the nominal insurer
If you want to pm me I am happy to talk you through it
No it is not initial certificate in nsw is $140 long consultation plus a $15 fee for the certificateI think $250 would be the gazetted rate + certificate of capacity, case conference and another equipment or aid provided (such as ice, voltaren etc).
Fairwork is not workers compensation, the insurers can leave the worker out of pocket as the $250 fee is a practice fee and not gazetted, which means the insurer can argue they will not reimburse.Advice from tiger05 seems to be on the mark.
