Saskatchewan Government Insurance (SGI) / Saskatchewan Auto Fund (SAF)
SGI is the sole provider of universal compulsory auto insurance in Saskatchewan. SGI CANADA is the trade name of the property and casualty insurance division of SGI and products are sold through a network of independent insurance brokers.
If you sustained a catastrophic injury due to an auto accident, you may qualify for catheter coverage.
Settlements / lump sum payouts can take many years. During that time, the insurance company covers catheters as recommended by the physician and is dependent on individual adjustor approval. The client usually receives a report at time of settlement itemizing products and services currently being covered and their associated annual costs - it is up to client to manage the settlement amount and associated expenses for their lifetime. The insurance company will no longer be involved once the client settles.
It is important that you are using the best catheter option for you.
