Reimbursement of training costs
To ensure rural based workers can access training in metropolitan areas, the department provides reimbursement for travel, accommodation and meals. Conditions apply and reimbursements are limited to workers employed in nominated department funded programs. In some circumstances, prior approval is required.
We require a tax invoice made payable to the Department of Health and Human Services to process these reimbursements. The new claim form can be used for this purpose, but must include agency ABN and an invoice number.
Agencies will need to complete the relevant claim forms when making claims.
