DVA card

Who is eligible?

Gold Card Veterans are covered fully for Chiropractic care.

White cards are covered if a referral to a Chiropractor is requested due to an injury sustained or caused by service or war.

How do I access this service?

You must obtain a referral to your chiropractor from one of the following; Chiropractor with current referral, GP, Local Medical Officer, Medical specialist, Doctor in Hospital, Hospital discharge planner.

These referrals are active for 12 months periods only. You must go see your GP or other source for a new referral every 12 months.

What happens when I visit the Chiropractor?

Tell your chiropractor you are a DVA Health Card patient, and present the card to reception.  The Chiropractor will assess and diagnose you through orthopaedic and neurological tests and x-rays may need to be taken (which will also be covered by your DVA card). Your chiropractor will determine a suitable treatment plan and discuss this with you.

Are there limits to the number of services I can receive?

Yes, this is up to your treating Chiropractor. After assessing you they will establish the amount and frequency of services you require, as well as discuss the type of treatment you will be receiving.
