Providing early notification prior to cessation of medical benefits helps to ensure that workers have sufficient time to prepare for cessation and make any necessary arrangements.
Section 59A notification
Principle: Workers whose medical benefits are due to cease will be provided with appropriate notice prior to the cessation of those benefits.
Insurers must provide written notification to a worker and the nominated treating doctor before the cessation of medical benefits and must include:
||Notification provided at least 13 weeks prior to cessation of benefits.|
|Application||This standard does not apply to exempt workers.|
