For those that hold a DVA Gold Card holder, the DVA will cover Podiatry services that are clinically required;
For those that hold a DVA White Card holder, the DVA will cover Podiatry services if a GP referral has been made to the clinic suggesting that our services are required due to an eligible service or war caused related condition.
If you are a DVA White Card holder, you will require a referral from your General Practitioner (GP) in order to attain Podiatry services at our clinic. Some Podiatry services also require prior approval from DVA in order to be funded under this system.
