DVA provider news update
Updates have been made to the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA)’s Rehabilitation and Appliances (RAP) schedule, and the Domiciliary Medical Oxygen Therapy (DMOT) and Positive Airway Pressure (PAP) National Guidelines and prescription forms.
These changes were due to a change in contracts for PAP and DMOT services and products, with new contracts with PAP and DMOT product groups commencing on 1 June 2021.
The changes include the introduction of a two-year prescription period for DMOT products to ensure clients are periodically reviewed so that their clinical needs continue to be met and the most appropriate items provided. If DMOT products are required beyond the two-year prescription period, a new prescription needs to be completed before the two-year period expires.
