DVA Rehabilitation Appliances Program

The Department of Veterans' Affairs (DVA) provides a range of continence products to eligible members of the veteran community through the Rehabilitation Appliances Program (RAP). If the applicant is an entitled veteran or war widow(er), support can be accessed if they:

  • hold a Gold Card (eligible for treatment of all conditions whether or not they are related to war services)
  • hold a White Card and the incontinence is a result of a specific accepted disability (to determine eligibility contact the Rehabilitation Appliances Program at DVA)
  • have been assessed by a health professional as requiring products for incontinence, or
  • products are provided as part of the overall health care management.

Gold and White Card holders are not eligible if they are residents receiving high level aged care. A form requesting the continence products needs to be filled out by the assessing doctor or health professional. It is then sent to an authorised product supplier on behalf of the client.

For all enquires in regards to continence products and supply arrangements please contact the South Australian State Office: National Continence Contract Team
