Dr Lane treats WorkCover patients. At the time of consultation, most WorkCover patients have a claim number which enables our staff to directly bill WorkCover Qld, with no fees payable by the patient.
Occasionally following an acute injury, the consultation may be urgent and so the claim still being processed by WorkCover Qld. In this circumstance, the patient will be expected to pay for the consultation on the day of attendance. Once the claim number is processed by WorkCover Qld, the patient will be reimbursed by them.
If surgery is required, our staff will need to obtain acceptance of financial liability from WorkCover Qld for the proposed surgery. Once acceptance is received a surgical date will be arranged and the patient informed. This surgery is performed at no cost to the patient.
