Step 4

Email a scanned copy of the original signed EC application form and EC attachments as photocopies of these are not accepted.

 Documents must be emailed to exceptional.cases [at] dva.gov.au.

You need to let us know when there is a variation or interruption to a client's care. To do this use the Exceptional Case Status — Variation or Interruption to Care from. Refer to our Notes for community nursing providers.
