Essential Medical Equipment Payment

Post by Admin on Mon 28 May 2012, 10:11

Hi All,

An Essential Medical Equipment Payment – an annual payment of $140 to support those with higher than average energy costs because they rely on essential medical equipment at home. Persons holding a Commonwealth Government concession card or a Department of Veterans’ Affairs Gold or White Card; and who use certain essential medical equipment, or have certain medical conditions that require the use of additional heating and/or cooling in their home, may be entitled to claim the Essential Medical Equipment Payment

Could you please ensure all members are aware of this payment.

Could you please make your members aware of this as it is not an automatic payment (it affects those on CPAP devices plus other devices) and must be claimed for. You can find full details on the website www.dva.gov.au/householdassistance scroll down to Essential Medical Equipment Payment and clik on ‘Read more’ for more details.

Regards
