AAPi has participated in the consultation process currently being undertaken by the NSW Government State Insurance Regulatory Authority (SIRA). On behalf of our NSW-based psychologists, we thank SIRA for the opportunity to contribute to this consultation. We understand the aim of this process is to improve the effectiveness, efficiency, affordability and sustainability of delivering medical and allied health services to injured workers and motorists. The AAPi would like to thank SIRA for the current use of a one rate (one tier) schedule of psychology services related fees for all psychologists. It is the clear and unequivocal stance of AAPi that this one rate or one tier system for psychology services continue. During our submission, AAPi provided an evidence backed response why the schedule of fees should be consistent for all psychologists.
