What happens at the assessment
A Government-contracted Doctor reviews your evidence and writes a report about the impact of your condition.
A Government-contracted Doctor from Sonic HealthPlus reviews the medical evidence you provided with your claim. They may contact your treating doctors and health professionals to clarify information about your medical evidence.
They review your impairment rating and assess how your condition affects you.
After your assessment, the Government-contracted Doctor will write a report about the impact of your condition. They’ll then send the report to us.
Their report helps us decide if you meet the medical rules for DSP.
