This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.
These regulations, which come into force on the 28th day after the date of their notification in the Gazette, amend the Accident Insurance (Insurer's Liability to Pay Cost of Treatment) Regulations 1999 (
“the principal regulations”).
The regulations clarify the descriptions for some items in the Schedule, relating to wound and fracture care. The amounts payable for each of the amended items has not changed.
The regulations also clarify that practice nurses under regulation 12 should also be subject to limitations on multiple procedures, as are registered medical practitioners under regulations 10(3) and (4).
