In the CTP Scheme, a person who is injured in a motor vehicle accident may be entitled to compensation for their injuries.
The South Australian Motor Accident Injury Accreditation Scheme (MAIAS) was established by the Attorney-General under Section 76 of the Civil Liability Act 1936 to accredit health professionals to undertake Injury Scale Value (ISV) medical assessments, to help determine an injured person’s eligibility for compensation under the CTP Scheme.
The Regulator, appointed by the Attorney-General, is the MAIAS Administrator with administrative and financial responsibility of the MAIAS. A key objective of the MAIAS is to create an independent system that provides consistent, objective and reliable ISV medical assessments.
The Regulator uses the MAIAS Scheme Rules approved by the Attorney-General to prescribe the regulatory and service standards required for medical practitioners to achieve and maintain accreditation under the MAIAS.
