Looks like I'll have to give up on my DRSL review as an x-ray & associated report is not good enough to request ACC to send me to see a specialist (they cost far too much money) and I also cannot afford a MRI scan scan either.Posted Image

Your GP can refer you to a Specialist and from there it is up to the Specialist to 'order a MRI or whatever appropriate xray'
and it's up to your specialist to write to CM to state his concerns that he feels warrants the MRI xray. Failing that your GP can order one for you through the public system. Just means you have to wait longer for it and ACC would be advised of your impending Xray wait and any DRSL review/er will be advised and the review I would imagine be postponed till you have the report...??? (only quessing) However I did go on my own back to a specialist for an assessment and he was gob smacked and wrote stern letters to ACC.. YUP ACC had to pay for my Xrays AND my MRIs that followed.

Thanks for that info. I'll make an appointment with my GP this coming week and get her to refer for an MRI scan under the public system. That way the MRI scan will cost me nothing.

I've informed my lawyer thatI'm not going to bother with my DSRL review as it's a waste of time and energy! Due to the factthat if the MRI scan reveals new injury or injuries means the applicant(meaning me) can still apply for cover for this injury or injuries. So thatmeans, my DSRL review is null and avoid.
