WorkCover Queensland releases enhanced app


WorkCover Queensland releases updated mobile app to help injured workers track their compensation claims.

WorkCover Queensland has released an update to its Worker Assist app which enables injured workers to keep track of their claim by seeing upcoming wage payments, medical expense reimbursements, medical appointments and more.

The app originally came out in August, but the new update has added the ability to upload medical certificates and other documents by taking a photo, as well as the option to complete a tax file number declaration.

 "Providing direct access to claim information allows workers to stay focussed on their rehabilitation and return to work without having to worry about when their next appointment or payment is due," WorkCover general manager Irene Violet says.

WorkCover Queensland says that for the month of October over 14,000 logins were recorded, and that the app is currently used by over 2,500 injured workers.

 "Our online services, such as Worker Assist, recognise that many injured workers want the convenience of being able to track their compensation claim anywhere, anytime because the longer they are off work the more this impacts their family life and costs employers in increased premiums," Violet adds.

The app is available for both iOS and Android devices, and much of the functionality is available on the website for users on a desktop.
