Are you prepared for the possible costs associated with your child’s accident?
Children and students are active and curious. Even in the best of circumstances, accidents can happen. If your child has an accident, the financial consequences could be devastating to your family.
When a child is injured as the result of an accident, many people think about the medical costs. However, most people do not consider other costs, such as Tutoring, Special Training, Emergency Transportation, and more!
Here are some real claims examples to highlight the possible costs associated with a child’s accident or out-of-country sudden and unforeseen medical emergency, that are not usually covered by any extended or government health insurance plans.
A child playing hockey trips on ice at an arena, resulting in a fractured Tibia. The insured lives in northern Ontario so he/she has to travel to Sick Kids in Toronto.
Reimbursements: $100 fracture/dislocation benefit, pending outcome of claim with Hockey Canada: $500 physiotherapy, $64 cast, $35 crutches, and $150 travel expenses for gas and food.
A child, while away on a holiday, starts to have severe pain in their back. A US hospital diagnosed a spinal cord tumor.
Reimbursements: out-of-country medical expenses totaled $130,000 – maximum policy benefit was $100,000, which was paid to the parents. $3,000 for special treatment travel expenses.
