Page 14 DVA Claiming DVA Webclaim was designed for providers who couldn’t justify purchasing online claiming software and therefore continue to claim manually. Several DVA providers attended a DVA Webclaim co- design workshop in August 2013. These providers gave useful insight into the needs of a busy health professional, including the need for access outside of business hours and a simple, intuitive system. DVA Webclaim has been made available from 15 Sep 2014.
