Schedule and guidelines
The revised National Schedule of Equipment lists more than 250 items available under the Rehabilitation Appliances Program (RAP), with increases in the financial and quantity limits on several items available to entitled members of the veteran community. Outdated items have been removed from the Schedule, and new items added offering improved results.
In addition, Local Medical Officers and other general practitioners can now assess for all RAP items where a specialist health provider is unavailable. This will help to avoid delays in the assessment and supply processes for people in regional and remote areas.
Other changes to the schedule include a revised format and improved guidance to health providers.
