Invoicing workers’ compensation patients
WorkCover WA often receives enquiries from general practitioners, specialists and medical practice staff about how to invoice workers’ compensation patients.
Generally, a worker will pay their medical invoice after a consultation or treatment, and be reimbursed by their employer’s insurance company if the claim has been accepted.
However, you can also issue the invoice to the insurance company managing the injured worker’s claim to pay directly. You will need to contact the insurer to arrange this.
