Information for GPs
Verifying that an applicant has intellectual impairment is part of assessing a person’s eligibility for the scheme.
The Department can verify medical information for most applicants. However, some applicants will need to provide certification from a medical practitioner.
The information sheet for medical practitioners provides more information about the requirements and process.
The Department will provide applicants with a simple form (Evidence of intellectual impairment) for a medical practitioner to complete. They will bring the form to their appointment with a medical practitioner.
