It has been confirmed that when a member books-off mid cycle and communicates with Med Aire all the information is shared with AC OHS clinics with the exception of testing or diagnostic documents which should be given to you, the member.
Members who have booked off away from base may request the copy of the Med Aire correspondence via their respective OHS clinic, (below).
This information may be used to assist with WIP applications if you are off for 7+ days. If you continue to be off upon your return to home base you should consult your personal physician. The information provided by Med Aire does not negate the requirement to complete the WIP application but may assist in the adjudication of your claim.
Members should email OHS to request the following information:
