5 Accident Insurance VOTE MINISTER: Minister for Accident Insurance ADMINISTERING DEPARTMENT: Department of Labour The Minister of Labour is the Responsible Minister for the Department of Labour Part A - Statement of Objectives and Trends Part A1 - Objectives for Vote Accident Insurance Related Government Outcomes The appropriations in Vote Accident Insurance provide accident rehabilitation services to people who receive an injury but are not earning an income (excluding motor vehicle accidents, which are funded from the Motor Vehicle Account). The appropriations also fund policy advice, purchase advice and monitoring and evaluation related to protecting, maintaining and restoring people s capacities, injury prevention, and minimising the economic and social costs of injury.

6 Part A2 - Trends in Vote Accident Insurance The time series of non-departmental flows detailed in the table Trends in Vote Accident Insurance shows overall increases in non-departmental outputs purchased by the Crown. It also reflects increases in non-departmental expenses. Output Trends: 1995/96 to 2001/02 Vote Accident Rehabilitation and Compensation Insurance (ARCI) was established in 1993/94 as a separate Vote and renamed Vote Accident Insurance for the 1999/2000 year at the same time as the Accident Rehabilitation and Compensation Insurance Corporation was renamed the Accident Compensation Corporation. In 1995/96 the provision of policy advice was separated from the management of the scheme. The output class was renamed Policy and Monitoring and additional appropriation provided for a policy and monitoring unit within the Department of Labour. Output classes Earner Elective Health Care Services and Non-Earner Elective Health Care Services were included in 1996/97. Previously these services were funded via Vote Health. From 1 July 1997, Earner Elective Health Care Services were funded via the earners premiums and the output class was disestablished. From 1998/99 the separate output classes for Medical Treatment, Health Care and Social Rehabilitation were included in one output class - Claim Entitlements and Services. Competition was introduced for work related accident insurance from 1 July 1999 and the output class Regulatory Services was set up to fund the market Regulator. The Accident Insurance Regulator s task was to ensure that employers purchase insurance and to provide accident insurance information to stakeholders. The Regulatory Services output class is funded by levies from insurers. The role of the Accident Insurance Regulator has changed as a result of the passing of the Accident Insurance (Transitional Provisions) Act 2000 which came into force on 1 April This Act returns accident insurance to a single public fund. From 1 July 2000, the primary objectives of the Regulator are to monitor work related claims made against Accident Insurance contracts during 1999/2000 that still receive entitlements in 2000/01, and to maintain the Accident Insurance information database. The Regulator will also manage the Non-Compliers Fund which funds those claims made by claimants whose employer did not have an accident insurance contract in force at the time of injury. The management of the introduction of competition in workplace accident insurance was provided through the ACC Competition Transition output class, which was established in 1998/99. The final appropriation was in 1999/2000. The two non-departmental expenses for the payment of claims relating to insurer insolvency and employer non-compliance were disestablished following a Cabinet decision on 1 May Two departmental output classes were established: Non- Compliers Fund and Insolvent Insurers Fund. A new departmental output class, ACC Transition, was established in 1999/2000 for the management of the transition of workplace accident insurance to a single public fund. This output class is also funding the monitoring of implementation of changes arising from passing the Injury Prevention and Rehabilitation Bill B.5 Vol.I

7 In 2000/01, the Crown agreed to fully fund the Non-Earners Account for new claims from 1 July 2001 and continue to fund existing claims as at that date on a pay-as-yougo (PAYG) basis. Appropriations for the Non-Earners Account in 2000/01 were on a PAYG basis. Appropriations from 2001/02 will have two components that will be separately disclosed. The first is the estimate of the full cost of new claims that occur in the 2001/02 year and the second is for payments associated with prior years claims. The purpose of this change was to reflect the true cost each year of rehabilitating and compensating non earners, and align appropriations to ACC with expenses. A new non-departmental output class appropriation for Public Health Acute Services in Vote Accident Insurance was also established. In addition, the main expenditure items within the non departmental output class Claim Entitlements and Services will be disclosed separately to increase transparency around the different types of output that contribute to different outcomes. Crown Expenditure and Revenue Trends: 1995/96 to 2001/02 Changes in non-departmental output expenditure principally reflect changes in output class O2 Claim Entitlements and Services. The main component of Claim Entitlements and Services is expenditure on medical services, social rehabilitation and elective health care services. Growth in medical treatment spending since 1994/95 reflects increasing service levels, increased cost per treatment, and an increasing number of seriously injured claimants in the Non-Earners Account. ACC s baseline was adjusted in 1999/00 to reflect higher volumes and costs of elective hospital treatment. The increase in 2001/02 is primarily due to a change in the funding basis for the Non- Earners Account. The increase in funding of Case Management and Supporting Services in 1998/99 reflects a change in the method of allocating costs between ACC accounts. The increase in 2001/02 reflects the estimate of current and future claims management costs associated with injuries that occur in the 2001/02 year. There are marked variations in Benefits and Other Unrequited Expenses - Other Compensation, arising from phasing out lump sums and the amount of the surplus/deficit carried forward each year. Previously claimants affected by serious injury were entitled to lump sum claim payments. These payments were removed in the 1992 Act but some payments were continued until 1997/98 as a result of appeals. Expenditure for 1997/98 and 1998/99 also included payment for backdated attendant care for complex personal injury claimants. The increase in 2001/02 is primarily due to a change in the funding basis for the Non-Earners Account. The Accident Insurance Act 1998 provided that insurers and ACC (for all Accounts including Non-Earners ) pay a levy to the Crown to cover costs of public health acute services provided to those injured by accidents. From 1999/00 a fiscally neutral adjustment will be made each year to reflect the cost of public health acute services provided to non-earners. B.5 Vol.I 7

8 Analysis by Appropriation Type: 2000/2001 and 2001/02 Compared Departmental output classes Annual appropriations are expected to decrease by $0.569 million (11%) in 2001/02. This decrease relates to a reduction in regulatory services costs resulting from the Government's decision to remove competition from workplace accident insurance. This is offset slightly by the transfer of some funds for monitoring the second stage of the accident insurance reforms from 2000/01 to 2001/02 reflecting deferral of the planned implementation date for the Injury Prevention and Rehabilitation Bill to 1 April 2002 and consequently the deferral of some monitoring activities. Non-departmental output classes Annual appropriations for purchasing non-departmental outputs are expected to increase by $ million (52%) for 2001/02 relative to 2000/01. The increase is primarily due to a Cabinet decision to fully fund new claims from 1 July The output class includes both the full funded expenses for new claims in the 2001/02 year and pay-as-you-go costs for payments made on existing claims. In addition, social rehabilitation costs are expected to continue to increase for seriously injured claimants (due to both cost and volume increases). Also, responsibility and funding for purchasing non acute inpatient rehabilitation services has now transferred from Vote Health to Vote Accident Insurance. Benefits and unrequited expenses Expenditure is expected to increase by $ million (71%) in 2001/02. This increase is also primarily due to a Cabinet decision to fully fund new claims. The output class includes both the full funded expenses for new claims in the 2001/02 year and pay-as-you-go costs for payments made on existing claims. It also reflects the cost of implementing policy changes (in particular lump sums) anticipated with the passing of the Injury Prevention and Rehabilitation Bill (planned in force date of 1 April 2002), and increasing contributions to the Medical Misadventure Account related to increasing price and volumes in that Account. The 2000/01 year was low due to the misallocation in previous years of weekly compensation claims that have now been transferred out to the correct account. Other Expenses Motor Spirits Excise Duty related payments to fund compensation and services from the Motor Vehicle Account will increase by $0.687 million (1%) in 2001/02. The change is the net effect of a forecasting change and change to the levy rate to compensate for this forecasting change. The Motor Vehicle Account is funded through excise duty and motor vehicle licensing fees. 8 B.5 Vol.I
