If we assess your claim under general medical rules you may be asked to attend a Disability Medical Assessment with Sonic HealthPlus. Not everyone who claims DSP needs to attend. Sonic HealthPlus will contact you if you need to attend.
You may also need to attend if you’re already getting DSP. This is so we can check if you still meet the DSP medical rules.
A Disability Medical Assessment (DMA) helps us decide if you meet the medical rules for Disability Support Pension.
You’ll need to bring some paperwork to your assessment. You can also bring someone for support.
A Government-contracted Doctor will confirm your identity and speak to you about your medical conditions and the impact it has on you.
If you can’t attend your assessment, you can reschedule your appointment.
