REFERRALS & FAQs

At SP Care Consulting we have vast experience with VOCAT matters, TAC and Worksafe claims. We have provided support to victims of violent crime against the person as well as family members of victims. We have experience and knowledge in VOCAT Psychological report writing. We also have experience and expertise in providing support to victims of road trauma and Worksafe accidents and incidents.

VOCAT

If you are a victim of a violent crime which occurred in Victoria, you may be eligible for financial assistance under The Victims of Crime Assistance Tribunal (VOCAT). We are experienced in assisting clients who are making an application to the VOCAT. VOCAT outcomes will determine psychology sessions for suitable applicants. There is NO gap fee for clients with approved VOCAT sessions.

Worksafe

All WorkSafe referrals are aimed at return to work for injured workers. Improving Psychological health and well-being of the individual is paramount to returning to work. All claims need to be lodged via your treating GP. In order to commence sessions, your claim needs to be first accepted by WorkSafe. All sessions are billed directly to the relevant WorkSafe insurer and there is NO gap fee for the patient, once approved.

TAC

If you or your immediate family have been impacted by road trauma, the TAC may fund psychology sessions. A client must be initially referred by their treating GP.

The TAC will fund sessions to treat mental health issues relevant to the road trauma and the number of sessions will vary from person to person. Treatment plans will be discussed in your first session. There is NO gap payment for the client when attending with an approved TAC treatment plan.
