On 20 December 2013 the Workers Compensation Amendment (Medical Expenses) Regulation 2013 (Amending Regulating) commenced and amended the Workers Compensation Regulation 2010 (NSW).

The Amending Regulation makes a transitional provision for compensation for medical and other treatments relating to the commencement of the Workers Compensation Legislation Amendment Act 2012 (NSW) enabling the payment of compensation for certain specified treatments, for which no compensation would be otherwise payable, after the cut-off date of 1 January 2014 if they were approved by the insurer before that date.
