Complaints lodged with CTP Insurers
Each CTP Insurer has their own complaint and dispute management systems in place that are designed to resolve any issues with CTP claims.
If your complaint or dispute relates to a CTP claim currently being managed by one of the four CTP Insurers, the first step you can take is to ask the CTP Insurer to review your claim. This includes review by the Insurer’s State Claims Manager. View the CTP Insurers’ contact details.
The CTP Insurer must endeavour to resolve all complaints within 10 business days of receiving the complaint and they must provide a final written response to you within 30 business days.
If you disagree with a determination made by a CTP Insurer, you may ask to have that decision referred to the insurer’s Internal Dispute Resolution (IDR) process. The CTP Insurer must fully explain their IDR process to you.
If you disagree with a determination made by a CTP Insurer and ask them to conciliate the dispute within 30 days of the determination being made, the insurer must agree to conciliate the dispute with a Conciliator. The insurer must arrange this within 30 days of your request being made.
Our “Complaints and disputes” fact sheet is available to download. Or you can contact the claims consultant managing your claim for further assistance.
