Worker’s Compensation consultations are billed at WorkCover approved rates. These consultations will be billed directly to your insurance company if they have accepted liability and you can provide all billing details (including approval number and name of insurance company) at the time of consultation. If you do not have a claim number, you will be charged at AMA rates and may be able to claim the cost of the consultation from your employer.
