A TAC claim is an insurance claim you make if you are injured in a transport accident. If the TAC accepts your claim, they can help pay for medical and like expenses, such as physiotherapy, to help you recover from your accident injuries.
Melbourne CBD Physio is an approved TAC Physiotherapy provider. We understand the extent that a road accident injury can affect your daily living and we’re here to help you get back on track. You can begin physiotherapy treatment for the injury immediately after your accident, but you will be required to keep all receipts for approval and TAC reimbursement.
TAC sets the maximum rate that they fund medical or relate health service visits. Melbourne CBD Physio charges a gap payment for TAC visits, which means there is some out of pocket expense. Please see below for the fee schedule based on the 2021/22 TAC rates, or view more information on the TAC website.
