Health Care

Get well and stay well.

We provide Veterans health care, recognising the unique nature of military service and the resultant health effects.  

We use DVA and Medicare to optimise Veterans Health – to get you well and to keep you well. 

DVA Claims

Get your claims up. 

We specialise in DVA diagnosis of disease in accordance with the DVA Statements of Principles for DVA Claims.

This is done through a process of history, examination and investigation to get your DVA Claims processed.

Permanent Impairment Assessments

Get it right the first time.

We utilise clinical acumen and understanding of the DVA processes to do permanent impairment assessments right.

This results in a comprehensive and independent report aligned with the GARP and the AMA Impairment Guides.
