An injured worker with Gallagher Bassett Services VIC received an email stating a change of policy to their travel reimbursement
WorkCover travel reimbursement scams

This means if you would normally claim for trips to the pharmacy or to the local pool to undertake therapy it will make it more difficult to claim for travel.
And if you make an error on your dates (e.g attended on 16th but travel form said 17th) then stiff you miss out.
This new system makes an already difficult and puzzling system worse.
I and I’m sure all injured workers want to be off the workcover system and back to work, however they are making it harder and harder to do so in more ways than one with all of their policy changes.
