An Explanation of the Fund Levy

The Fund Levy was the MCIS Levy

The Fund Levy used to be known as the Medical Care and Injury Services Levy (MCIS Levy).

The MCIS Levy first appeared in 2006 with the introduction of the Lifetime Care and Support Scheme. A full explanation of the Lifetime Care and Support Scheme is on this site.

The Fund Levy is currently a fixed dollar amount, based on vehicle type and location. It appears as a separate charge on your greenslip.

The Fund Levy is made up of two separate components:

1. The largest component of the Fund Levy funds the Lifetime Care and Support Scheme:

  • LCSA General Fund
  • Motor Accident Injuries Treatment and Care Benefits (MAITC) Fund.

2. The second component of the Levy is for the State Insurance Regulatory Authority (SIRA Fund). SIRA uses the SIRA component of the Fund Levy to pay:

  • Operating costs of SIRA
  • Fees to Transport for NSW (TfNSW) to administer the registration process
  • Costs of public hospital, ambulance and other services for people injured in an accident.

The SIRA component of the Fund Levy is set by SIRA. It is calculated as a percentage, currently around 11% of greenslip premiums.
