ICBC Updates

As of May 1, 2021, ICBC initiated “enhanced care” coverage for all British Columbians – replacing all previous coverage limits. This no-fault insurance ensures that all claimants have access to improved benefits, whether the claimant is a driver, passenger, pedestrian or cyclist, and regardless of whether at-fault for a crash or involved in a single-car collision.

British Columbians hurt in a crash will also have access to significantly enhanced medical care and recovery benefits, regardless of whether they were at-fault. Care and recovery benefits will increase from $300,000 to a maximum of at least $7.5 million — 24 times higher than what’s available today.

Wage loss payments will be 60 per cent higher than today, to a maximum of up to $1,200 per week.

Here’s the good part, with the introduction of enhanced care coverage, customers will also receive a pro-rated refund, on the remaining portion of their existing insurance policy beyond May 1, 2021.
