Changes to the NSW CTP scheme on and after 1 December 2017
On 1 December 2017, major reforms to the CTP scheme were introduced by the Motor Accident Injuries Act 2017 (MAIA 2017).
The NSW Government implemented the new CTP scheme to:
- encourage early and appropriate treatment to achieve optimum recovery and maximise return to work or usual activities
- increase the proportion of benefits provided to the most seriously injured road users
- reduce the cost of Green Slip premiums
- reduce the opportunity for claim fraud and exaggeration.
This will mean people injured in a motor accident on and after 1 December 2017 can make a claim and may be entitled to a new range of benefits. The claims and dispute management processes have also been changed to provide an improved claimant experience. The State Insurance Regulatory Authority (SIRA) has introduced CTP Assist to provide support for people throughout their claim and procedural information on the claims process.
If you are treating an injured person whose motor accident was prior to 1 December 2017, the benefits under the Motor Accidents Compensation Act 1999 apply. The Accident Notification form (ANF) and Personal Injury Claim form (PICF), claims and dispute process and how you provide services will continue.
