What it contains
Under Victorian workers' compensation legislation, an excess may apply to WorkSafe claims.
Physical injury only claims
For claims which are for a physical injury only, employers need to pay:
- the first 10 working days of weekly payments to their worker who has an accepted work-related injury or illness
- initial medical and like expenses up to an annually nominated amount, known as medical excess, for services* relating to the accepted work-related injury or illness
The medical excess amount is adjusted annually.
