Prior Approval Process

What is RAP?

DVA – (RAP) assists eligible persons to be as independent and self-reliant as possible in their own homes. The provision of aids and appliances is intended to minimise the impact of disabilities and maximise quality of life and independence.  RAP provides aids and appliances according to assessed clinical need. Eligible persons are assessed by an appropriately qualified health professional, usually an occupational therapist, GP, physiotherapist or registered nurse. Where appropriate, the health professional will also provide instruction in the use of the aid/appliance.  Items issued under RAP are generally designed specifically for people with an illness or disability.

 

Accessing RAP

Where an aid or appliance is assessed as clinically necessary the assessing health professional must complete a Direct Order Form (D0992).  Forward the form, along with a clinical justification, to TabTimer so we can prepare a quote and we will then forward the application to DVA Rehabilitation Appliance Program (RAP) who will then consider the application and if approved, will forward the order directly to TabTimer.

 

Non-Schedule items

TabTimer products that are not listed as an available item on the DVA Schedule of Equipment can be obtained via a special application for a ‘non-Schedule item’.  One-off requests for non-Schedule items may be considered where an assessed clinical need cannot be adequately addressed by any current Schedule item.

If you require a quote, you can contact TabTimer and request one, or send us your completed Direct Order Form -D0992 along with a clinical justification, and we will submit it to DVA for you with a copy of our quotation.  

Your justification should detail whether you have considered other products that are currently on contract with DVA and specify why the product is requested in place of other items available i.e. the items on contract do not have the features required for this veterans needs and requirements.

 

Please contact TabTimer if you require any further clarification or assistance.
