Department of Veterans’ Affairs

Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) helps provide Physiotherapy treatment for eligible DVA members. If you are a current or former serving member of the Australian Defence Force, you may be eligible for pensions or benefits from the DVA. These benefits may also apply if you are the spouse, widow, or child of an eligible DVA member or veteran.


Who qualifies for DVA physiotherapy?

Under the DVA benefits scheme, eligible clients can access Physiotherapy treatment. DVA Gold Card holders are entitled to clinically necessary treatment covered by DVA’s health care arrangements for all health conditions. DVA White Card holders are entitled to clinically necessary treatment for an accpeted dissability (ie. an injury or disease accepted by DVA as caused by war or service).

Do I need a referral?


Eligible clients need a D904 Physiotherapy referral from their General Practitioner, medical specialist, treating doctor in hospital, or hospital discharge planner.

Do I need to pay for DVA Physiotherapy?

If you are an eligible DVA card holder, Revive Physiotherapy will directly bulk bill the DVA. You will not need to pay a gap payment for your appointments.

What do I need to bring to my appointment?
