Toward the end of the financial year, the LSS Rules were reviewed for the first time since the commencement of the scheme.
The LSS Rules is a comprehensive set of regulations that govern the Lifetime Support Scheme. They not only set out the eligibility criteria for the LSS, but also assessment tools and the scope of treatment care and support available to scheme participants.
The LSA’s Board undertook the review, in consultation with LSA staff, and looked at the Rules functionality and effectiveness.
The amendments were implemented before the end of the financial year.
Anyone severely injured in a motor vehicle accidence since July 1, 2014 or someone acting on their behalf, may apply to the LSS.
People who sustain very serious injuries including those that cause paraplegia or quadriplegia, brain injury, whole limb or multiple amputations, major burns or blindness, will qualify for support.
The LSS Rules are available on the LSA’s website.
