“Delayed benefits are not just inconvenient – they can also potentially cause financial hardship and hinder medical improvement and return to work. Inconsistent decision-making inadvertently treats similar claimants differently.”
In a 347-page annual report released on Wednesday, the MB auditor general says that Manitoba Public Insurance does not always offer or provide personal injury protection benefits promptly or consistently. The auditor general also said the Crown corporation needs to improve rehabilitation planning and supervisory reviews of claim files, and needs to more clearly define certain benefits and their eligibility rules.
Many people have access to private insurance benefits, often through group benefit plans offered by their employers. These insurance benefits help to replace lost income when the insured person suffers an injury or disability that prevents them from working. These insurance benefits are very valuable. The application process is to receive benefits is complicated. Insurance companies often refuse to pay these benefits even when the applicant is entitled to payment. Many claimants may choose to give up the fight against the insurance company with limitless resources, or because they are too disabled or sick. Don’t give up your injury or disability insurance claim.
