Imaging@Olympic Park may issue an invoice to one of the abovementioned agents upon evidence of a current and accepted claim which covers Medical services.

Injections
Injections are deemed to be a surgical procedure and require pre-approval from your case manager. Please ensure you or your staff member seek the appropriate authorisation prior to the day of service.

If an authority letter cannot be provided prior to the service then the patient will be asked to settle the account on the day of service.

Asbestos screening

Transport Accident Commission (TAC)

Imaging@Olympic Park may be able to invoice to the TAC on your behalf provided you can supply an accepted and current claim number which relates to your service.

The Victorian Transport Accident Commission will provide claimants with a claim number for a particular accident and injury.  Prior to your service please ensure you have the necessary documentation to show that the service will be paid for by TAC.

Blood injections are not covered by TAC and are therefore invoiced to the patient for full payment on the day.
