My Skin Cancer Centre is proud to offer their services to the Department of Veteran Affairs. DVA patients are entitled to services providing they hold a White Card for skin-related issues, or a Gold Card. All skin cancer treatments are covered under DVA. Our staff can arrange the necessary transport to and from the clinic if required.
Important facts on DVA, skin cancer and you
The majority of treatments are covered under the Department of Veteran Affairs Act providing your hold the correct card. This entitles you to services such as skin cancer screening, cryotherapy, skin cancer surgery and state of the art treatments such as PDT or Photodynamic Therapy and newer topical treatment.
You are also entitled to services provided by BOTH Skin Cancer Doctors AND Specialist Dermatologists.
Some treatments are not covered under DVA, even if you hold the correct Card for skin related issues.
Treatments NOT covered under the Department of Veteran Affairs include-
*Note however, that PDT or Photodynamic Therapy is covered under DVA.
If you have served with the Department of Defence, you maybe entitled to a White or Gold Card. You will need to speak to DVA to arrange for an assessment by an Advocate. Based upon your service history, occupational history and service dates, you maybe granted a card that entitles you to treatment under the Department of Veteran affairs act.
This process may take a few months to process.
As a WHITE or GOLD Card holder, you are also entitled to see a Specialist Dermatologist for your skin. Our Skin Cancer doctors can arrange an appointment to visit a Dermatologist, as we work closely with Specialist to provide you with the best possible team orientated service.
