Information for health professionals on Disability Support Pension for patients
A new webpage may be useful for AMA members who have patients requiring assistance with disability support pensions. The webpage contains information and advice regarding eligibility and the assessment process.
The page on the Department of Human Services website includes a section detailing how the pension works and a section explaining eligibility criteria and how it is assessed. There is also a link to a medical evidence checklist doctors can use when assisting patients in compiling the evidence for their application.
