We have received a number of calls regarding DVA claims for Occupation Therapy report services (OT50 & OT51) being rejected with the following explanation code:

267  Service not payable - Associated service not present

After contacting DVA, they explained that they previously allowed payments on OT report services even if a corresponding consultation had not been processed for the same day. This is no longer the case. DVA now require a consultation to also be submitted when claiming for a report (obviously the patient needs to have been provided a consultation).

Please refer to the official DVA fee schedules below for more information:
Dental and Allied Health fee schedules

If you have any further questions, DVA can be contacted on 1300 550 457.
