WorkCover Queensland has updated guidelines for medical providers to use for lower limb surgery billing and requests.
The guidelines have been developed by WorkCover with the assistance of relevant stakeholders, doctors, and medical associations.
The guidelines will be used when approving requests and invoices for lower limb surgery. WorkCover has also included medical interventions in the guidelines.
WorkCover said it acknowledges the expertise and contribution of all stakeholders that provided comment for the review of these surgery guidelines.
