- Drivers and passengers not at fault are usually covered for physiotherapy treatment funded by the ICWA.
- To begin funded treatment, a referral from a General Practitioner (GP) is required for payment by ICWA. Without a copy of the referral letter for the physiotherapist, the person will be billed as a full fee paying client.
