What will happen to my income support if I can’t obtain a Certificate of Fitness?

Due to the potential for COVID-19 to impact an injured person's ability to access and providers’ ability to deliver face to face treatment services, SIRA encourages the use of telehealth facilities where possible.

Telehealth services require pre-approval from the insurer and must be consented to by all parties. Practitioners must consider the appropriateness of this mode of service delivery for each person on a case-by-case basis. Practitioners are responsible for delivering telehealth services in accordance with the principles of professional conduct and the relevant professional and practice guidelines to ensure that all care is taken to ensure the safety, appropriateness and effectiveness of the service.
