The amount compensators are required to pay to the Compensation Recovery Unit in relation to treatment provided to injured Claimants will increase for injuries suffered on or after 1 April 2016.

The cap on total recoverable NHS Charges will increase from £47,569 to £48,849.

Although each individual increase is not significant, the total cost to the insurance industry is estimated at £3.6m per annum of which £2.6m will relate to road traffic accidents and £1.0m Employers Liability and Public Liability claims.  Insurers will need to ensure that their reserves for accidents which occur on or after 1 April 2016 reflect the increased level of charges.
