reasonably necessary... "In Bartolo v Western Sydney Area Health Service (1997) 14 NSWCCR 233, Burke CCJ specified a number of factors that are relevant in determining whether treatment is reasonably necessary. These are:
Schedule 1  provides that the jurisdiction of the Commission with respect to disputes about payment of medical, hospital and rehabilitation expenses extends to disputes about any proposed treatment or service.
This will enable the Commission to determine a dispute about whether a treatment or service is reasonably necessary before the treatment or service is provided.
(5) The jurisdiction of the Commission with respect to a dispute about compensation payable under this section extends to a dispute concerning any proposed treatment or service and the compensation that will be payable under this section in respect of any such proposed treatment or service. Any such dispute must be referred by the Registrar for assessment under Part 7 (Medical assessment) of Chapter 7 of the 1998 Act, unless the regulations otherwise provide.
