As you may be well aware, the Financial Services Commission of Ontario (FSCO) is considering slashing basic rehabilitation and medical benefits from $100,000 to $25,000. Not only is this a growing concern for health professionals, but angry car crash victims are now voicing their concerns. In fact, some victims recently spoke out against the benefit cuts at Nathan Phillips Square on 680 News.
A major concern voiced by victims was the inadequacy that $25,000 would offer to rehabilitation services. Particularly, victims from the multi-vehicle crash on the Burlington Skyway Bridge in 2004 spent up to $80,000 in only one year of rehab. Clearly, a cap of $25,000 to insurance benefits for these victims would have been detrimental.
