The regulation allows for payment of compensation for certain specified medical treatments, for which no compensation would be otherwise payable, after the cut-off date of 1 January 2014 only if they were approved by the insurer before that date.
To be eligible the worker had to be in receipt of compensation before the commencement of s59A of the 1987 Act (1 October 2012).
