What is the Life Time Care & Support Scheme?

The Lifetime Care & Support Authority of NSW is responsible for administering the Lifetime Care & Support Scheme (“the Scheme”)

The Scheme provides lifelong treatment, rehabilitation and care for people who had sustained catastrophic injuries including spinal cord injury, moderate to severe brain injury, multiple amputations, serious burns or blindness as a result of a motor vehicle accident.

The Lifetime Care & Support Scheme will pay for all medical treatment required for the remainder of a person’s life. If you become a member of the Scheme you can no longer obtain compensation for future medical expenses or care as a lump sum amount at the conclusion of your claim.

You need to apply to the Lifetime Care & Support Scheme to obtain approval to fund all treatment, rehabilitation and care needs.
