Optional Insurance Coverage

Optional coverage is available to customers. You should consider purchasing the coverage very carefully, as it can greatly increase your access to benefits in the event of an accident. Coverage limits were reduced significantly in June 2016, and many people who have been catastrophically or seriously injured, but not deemed Catastrophically Impaired under their auto insurance, may find that they run out of benefits before they recover from their injuries. In most cases the increased coverage is very reasonably priced and offers excellent value in the event of injury resulting from a car accident.

The policy owner has the option to purchase additional accident benefit coverage to increase the insurance coverage they will have in the event of personal injury in a car accident as follows:

  1. Medical, Rehabilitation and Attendant Care Benefits:
    1. Increase to $130,000 (for Non-Catastrophic Injuries)
    2. Increase to $2,000,000 (for Catastrophic Injuries)
    3. Increase to $1,000,000 (for Non-Catastrophic Injuries)
    4. Increase to $2,000,000 (for Catastrophic Injuries) to total $3,000,000
  2. Caregiver Benefit:
    1. Extend benefit to cover all injuries not just catastrophic injuries
  3. Housekeeping and Home Maintenance Expenses:
    1. Extend benefit to cover all injuries not just catastrophic injuries
  4. Income Replacement Benefit:
    1. Increase to $600, $800 or $1,000/week
  5. Dependant Care Benefit:
    1. Purchase up to $75/week for the first dependant and $25/week for additional dependants to a maximum of $150/week
  6. Death and Funeral Benefit:
    1. Increase to $50,000 for eligible spouse; $20,000 for each dependant; Maximum of $8000 for a funeral
