Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) physiotherapy helps provide treatment for eligible DVA members. If you are a current or former serving member of the Australia defence force, you may be eligible for pensions or benefits from the DVA. These benefits may also apply if you are the spouse, widow, or child of an eligible DVA member or veteran.

Who qualifies for DVA physiotherapy?
Under the DVA benefits scheme, eligible clients can access physiotherapy treatment. With DVA Gold Card holders, DVA will pay for physiotherapy services to meet your clinical needs. For DVA White Card holders, DVA will pay for physiotherapy services if they are required due to an accepted war or service caused injury or disease.
