Applicants seeking MASS subsidised aids and equipment will need to arrange a clinical assessment by a health care professional (prescriber) approved by MASS. The health care provider authorised to prescribe your equipment can vary depending on the aid required.
Contact your local Community Health Centre or domiciliary agency where health professionals such as physiotherapists, occupational therapists, registered nurses and continence advisors may be available to assist you. Together with your health care provider, you can complete an application form and forward it to MASS for consideration for subsidy funding assistance.
Prescriber responsibilities to MASS and the applicant, and eligibility criteria are available in the relevant sections of MASS Statewide Procedures Manual. View other pages on this website or contact MASS to confirm what is needed to have the aid prescribed.
