If you have sustained an injury at work you may be entitled to a WorkSafe claim. WorkSafe can pay the reasonable costs of physiotherapy services when required as a result of a work-related injury or illness under Victorian workers’ compensation legislation.
All Melbourne CBD Physios are qualified to liaise with WorkSafe Victoria to return you safely and comfortably back to work. We use evidence based physiotherapy treatments and technologies as well as supplementary educational tools to give you the confidence you need to take control of your workplace injury or illness.
WorkSafe sets maximum rates at which they will fund medical or related service visits. Melbourne CBD Physio does charge a gap payment for WorkSafe visits. Please see below for the fee schedule based on the 2021/22 WorkSafe rates.

A gap fee allows us the time to offer you a thorough assessment and management plan, follow up with your treatment outside of formal appointments, and align your physio treatment with treatment and opinions you may also receiving from other medical/allied health professionals.
WorkSafe requires your physio to formulate frequent reports and documentation to let them know how your treatment is travelling and if necessary, make the case for WorkSafe to continue funding physio beyond the approved amount.
