A 'no-fault' cerebral palsy pension scheme would benefit all Australians

MacLennan Alastair, H.,

Academic Literature

2011

The Australian Federal Productivity Commission proposed several new schemes to better support those with major disability. The National Injury Insurance Scheme (NIIS), will provide ‘no-fault ‘support for those following an accident or ‘medical injury’. While this brings quicker and more equitable benefits to CP families, the scheme labels CP as a ‘medical accident’ and infers preventability. This article seeks to explore a true‘no-fault’ cerebral palsy pension scheme.
