Our mission is to make this process as simple and as fast as possible for you.

When you haven’t found relief from conventional treatments, natural medicine may be an option for a range of symptoms, both physical and mental.

Am I eligible for DVA-funded natural therapy?

Am I eligible for DVA-funded natural therapy?

arrow_forward_ios

The Department of Veteran Affairs (DVA) considers covering eligible veterans for natural medicines, either partially or fully, depending on your condition, and if deemed medically appropriate by a doctor.

Valentius supports veterans through the entire process. Our medical professionals, including DVA Specialists and nurse practitioners, manage initial screening and assessment of suitability, develop an appropriate treatment plan, prepare and apply for all regulatory approvals and DVA funding application where applicable. Ongoing monitoring, adjustments and regular support ensure veterans are supervised throughout their treatment and get the best possible care.

What services does Valentius offer?

arrow_forward_ios

Valentius looks after eligible veteran patients all around Australia, even in rural and remote areas, via the convenience of telehealth. Our services are put in place to potentially fill the gap in helping alleviate patient symptoms with nature-based therapies, when conventional medicine has failed or fallen short.

Do I need a referral?

arrow_forward_ios

We have made it easy for you. No referral is necessary but we do need your medical summary in order for our team to get the full picture of your health needs.

What kind of DVA card do I need?

arrow_forward_ios

Screening and appointments at Valentius are bulk billed for all DVA card holders. If you are deemed eligible for natural medicine, Gold Card members may be assessed by the DVA to have their medication fully funded. White Card holders’ medication funding is subject to approval by the DVA based on their condition and symptoms such as incessant pain. This may result in either full or partial funding.

Can I reschedule my appointment?

arrow_forward_ios

Yes, you can reschedule or cancel your appointment up until 48 hours before your appointment time to cover costs and ensure appointments stay available for patients that need them.
