Nova Scotia auto insurance coverage enhanced
Nova Scotia’s auto insurance consumers will have increased benefits under their standard policy as of April 1, 2012, thanks to reforms recently introduced by the provincial government. With the enhanced coverage in place, the optional supplementary benefits endorsement (S.E.F. No. 48 – Optional supplementary Benefits Section B – Accident Benefits) is no longer needed. The policies of customers who had opted for it will be automatically updated to reflect this change.
Standard mandatory benefits will now include medical, rehabilitation, funeral, death, loss of income and housekeeper benefits as detailed below.
