I've never heard of a allied health professional employee, Has anyone got one here are they legit and professional?
A JCA is now part of the process for being granted DSP. It stands for job capacity assessment and is meant to be done by an allied health professional employed by Centrelink who is meant to be familiar with the applicant's conditions. This is not always the case, as it was in the AAT case you see here. The JCA assessor stuffed up and the person won at the tribunal. Hopes this clears that up for you.
Your only contact with them is through Assessment, either initial or re. Are they legit and professional? You'd need to experience it personally to determine that. Please see above! Cheers bear
Sounds better then a CL case worker they just start to demand you do mundane boring jobs for them and threaten to cut off your newstart payment. I can easily come up with way more effective intelligent programs and scary thing is I'm not even that smart.
An allied health professional is generally someone like a registered nurse, physiotherapist, psychologist, dietician.
In theory using the allied health professional was an 'improvement' to the dsp assessment but the issue was that at the same time the extensive medical report was removed.
The JCA will typically ask you questions based on the examples used in the impairment tables (ie can you walk around a supermarket)... most doctors reports do not go into that much detail and so its a self report vs a jca report and is generally where people get awarded less points than their doctors and they think they should.
