icare lifetime care
icare lifetime care provides lifetime care and support for people who have been severely injured in motor accidents in NSW, regardless of who was at fault. The Lifetime Care and Support Scheme, administered by the Lifetime Care and Support Authority, provides treatment, rehabilitation and care for those with severe road injuries.
Injuries can include spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, amputations, severe burns or permanent blindness. There are around 1100 people in the scheme. Traumatic brain injury remains the most common injury type (70 per cent of adults and 85 per cent of children). The scheme is funded through a levy paid by motorists when they purchase a CTP Green Slip insurance policy.
