Department of Veterans' Affairs - Rehabilitation and Appliance Program (RAP)
The Rehabilitation Appliance Program (RAP) is an Australian Government program, administered by the Department of Veterans' Affairs, which provides aids and appliances to eligible members of the veteran community to help them maintain their independence as they grow older. RAP appliances are available to Gold and White Card holders with a clinically assessed need. Aids and appliances are provided based on a referral from a Local Medical Officer or health professional (e.g. an occupational therapist).
As a registered agent for the Country Care Group, Mitchell Healthcare is able to accept referrals for the provision of aids to daily living, surgical appliances and home modifications under the DVA Rehabilitation Appliance Program. Referrals should be forwarded to Mitchell Healthcare using the RAP Direct Order Form.
