More Changes to SABS on February 1, 2014

The Government of Ontario has announced upcoming changes to the Statutory Accident Benefits Schedule (SABS), effective February 1, 2014. These changes include:

  • A requirement that, in order for an insured with a minor injury to be considered outside of the Minor Injury Guidelines, documentation will need to be provided of, "...a pre-existing medical condition that was documented by a health practitioner before the accident..."
  • If a "non-professional" is providing attendant care, the amount payable by the insurer will be limited to the actual amount of the economic loss sustained.
  • Disallowing an insured to re-elect to a new benefit (income replacement, non-earner or caregiver) regardless of any change in circumstances.

The amendment can be reviewed in its entirety by clicking here.
