Transport/Motor Accident Insurance (CTP)


Transport accident insurance is a state-based scheme providing funding support for people recovering from transport/motor accidents. This may also be referred to as Compulsory Third Party (CTP) Insurance.

In each state, there is a government body known as the insurance regulator who regulates and administers the scheme, including setting the rules allied health providers must meet.

Employers typically pay insurance premiums to an insurer to fund the scheme. Depending on the state, this may be the insurance regulator or an approved external. The insurer will typically be the point of contact for allied health providers for services and billing.
