What is the MCIS levy?

 

All Green Slips now show the MCIS (Medical Care and Injury Services) Levy as a separate item.

The MCIS Levy first appeared as a separate item on Green Slips in 2006 with the introduction of the Lifetime Care and Support scheme. This scheme provides medical care, treatment, rehabilitation, attendant care and support to anyone catastrophically injured (such as severe spinal cord and/or a traumatic brain injury) for the rest of their life.

The MCIS Levy also includes a contribution for ambulance, hospital and other services for people injured in a motor vehicle accident. These costs have always been included in your Green Slip premium, but were not listed as a separate item in the past.

The MCIS Levy is calculated as a percentage of the base premium charged by the Green Slip insurer. The MCIS Levy is GST free.

The percentage of the levy differs between vehicle classes and geographic zones based on accident and injury rates for the selected vehicle type and zone.
