Treatment for persons with 60 impairment points

             (1)  A person is entitled to be provided with treatment under this Part for any injury or disease of the person if:

                     (a)  the Commission has determined under Part 2 of Chapter 4 (permanent impairment) that an impairment resulting from one or more service injuries or diseases suffered by the person constitutes 60 or more impairment points; and

                     (b)  the person's impairment continues to constitute 60 or more impairment points; and

                     (c)  the treatment is provided to the person after the determination under Part 2 of Chapter 4 is made.

Note 1:       Compensation might be payable in respect of treatment obtained before the Commission determines that the person is entitled to treatment (see section 288A).

Note 2:       A person who ceases to be entitled to treatment under this section might still be entitled to treatment under section 282.

             (2)  However, if the person is only suffering from a single aggravated injury or disease, then the person is only entitled to be provided with the treatment if the impairment resulting from the aggravation or material contribution constitutes, and continues to constitute, 60 or more impairment points.
