Lifetime Care and Support is ano-fault insurance scheme ensuring people in the ACT who are catastrophically injured in a motor vehicle or workplace accident can manage their ongoing care needs.
The ACT Lifetime Care and Support Scheme is a no-fault insurance scheme that ensures that Canberrans who are catastrophically injured in a motor vehicle accident or a workplace accident, can manage their ongoing care needs into the future.
Under this scheme, ACT motorists and private sector workers needing lifetime care as a result of a catastrophic injury, have the opportunity to access a scheme that provides long-term care and support.
The Lifetime Care and Support Scheme is a companion scheme to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and its introduction is part of the implementation of the NDIS in the ACT. The Scheme aims to transform the way the ACT community supports people with a disability, their families and carers.
The scheme covers a range of treatment, rehabilitation, care and support services.
