Fracture Accident Benefits

Insured by Chubb Life Insurance Company of Canada

When an accident occurs that results in a broken bone, ensure that you are protected from head to toe with a tax-free lump-sum payment from The EDGE Fracture Accident Benefit. Whether adding this inexpensive coverage to disability income replacement benefits or purchasing on its own, the EDGE Fracture Benefit provides compensation for the pain, inconvenience and unexpected medical costs associated with fracture-related injuries.

Why you need accidental fracture coverage

Fractures and broken bones are the second most common type of injury in Canada.1

Each year:
  • 26% of Canadians aged 65 or older,
  • 14% of Canadians aged 20-64, and
  • 21% of adolescents sustain fractures and broken bones

As you age, the severity of a broken bone as the result of a fall or other accident increases. With Fracture Accident coverage, you and your family will be protected from financial hardship associated with an accident that results in a fracture.

Whether it be a financial cushion so you can take a day off of work a to get a cast for a broken arm or the cash needed to purchase a knee brace or compensation for a more serious fracture, this comprehensive benefit works seamlessly with other insurance coverage to ensure you’re receiving the financial support you need when an accident occurs.

See how the Fracture Accident Benefit is a great addition to your personal insurance coverage.

How fracture accident benefits work with The Edge Benefits

Unlike disability coverage, you are not required to prove your income or be unable to work in order to claim your fracture benefit. All you need is a diagnosis of a fracture, typically acquired through an X-ray and confirmed by a licensed physician.

When a fracture is diagnosed, you will receive a tax-free* lump-sum benefit in relation to the severity of the injury, up to $6,000 with the Primary Plan and $12,000 with the Base Plan.

Accident:
A sudden, unforeseen, fortuitous event.
Fracture:
A break or rupture involving the complete cross-section of the bone.

Administered by Chubb Life Insurance Company of Canada, anyone aged 18-64 can receive guaranteed-issue coverage until age 70. Coverage amounts are pre-determined by the estimated amount of time it takes for a fracture to heal.

This is not a one-time benefit, though any subsequent fracture of the same bone in the same place will result in a 50% reduction of the benefit. Additionally, no more than one fracture benefit will be paid with respect to all injuries resulting from the same accident. In the case of an accident resulting in multiple fractures, you would receive the largest amount in accordance with the most significant injury.

The EDGE Fracture Accident Benefit is paid in addition to any other insurance coverage you may have so you will receive the most from your benefits package. Trust the experts in personal insurance for your accidental fracture coverage. Contact The EDGE today to learn more.
