Access to treatment

DVA can pay for treatment for certain mental health conditions without the need for the conditions to be accepted as related to service. This is known as non-liability health care. The conditions covered are - post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depressive disorder, anxiety disorder, and alcohol and substance use disorders. Non-liability health care is available to anyone who has served as a permanent member of the ADF.

DVA can pay for your treatment for these mental health conditions before, during, or after you make a compensation claim, or if you never make a compensation claim.

Call DVA on 133 254 or 1800 555 254 or visit www.dva.gov.au/nlhc to find out if you are eligible and how to apply.
