Why Your BC Auto Insurance Premiums Are Going Down
Be ready for a savings surprise when you head in to buy your vehicle insurance. Insurance broker, Ka Hing Cheung with Vancouver based King Insurance Services, explains why. Go online or come in to renew your car insurance, buy insurance for your motorcycle or purchase insurance coverage for your truck or van and you’ll reap benefits from the Enhanced Care Coverage changes at ICBC that took effect May 1, 2021
BC motorists renewing their vehicle insurance see a reduction of insurance premiums from 20% to 40%. While the bonus is great for their bank account, people wonder about the reason for their savings.
The main reason is due to the new Lawsuit Ban for most accidents that occur after May 1, 2021. If you get into an accident, in most cases you cannot hire a lawyer. By eliminating the lawyer’s role, the road to recovery is no longer litigious anymore. The expected saving is estimated at $1.5 billion each year.
So, how will your losses and injuries be taken care of?
- ICBC is offering Enhanced care, which means there will be no limit to paying for your care and recovery.
- It is a customer-centric and care-focused model.
- Service providers will submit Treatment Plans for approval in the future.
Yes, with Enhanced Care, doctors and health care providers can now determine your medical care and deliver as you need it. This is different from having a lawyer involved who had to argue for your care under the system this is replacing and new.
