Auto insurance catheter coverage in Ontario
If you sustained a catastrophic injury due to an auto accident, you 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. Client usually gets 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 $ for their lifetime. Insurance company is no longer involved after client settles.
It is important that you are using the best catheter option for you.
