Accidental Mutilation

Workers and retirees considered insured for accidental mutilation

The insurance plans A, B, C, and D (basic or supplementary) offer accidental mutilation coverage.

In addition, workers who cannot be insured under plan A, B, C, or D or under the insurance plan for retirees receive accidental mutilation insurance in the following two situations:

  • If, in the preceding period, they were insured under plan A, B, or C, they obtain the accidental mutilation insurance coverage of plan C;
  • If, in the preceding period, they were insured under plan D, they obtain the accidental mutilation insurance protection of plan D.

Example: A worker insured under plan B from January to June automatically receives accidental mutilation insurance coverage under plan C for the following insurance period (July to December) if he or she is not insured under plan A, B, C, or D or by the insurance plan for retirees.

Persons covered by accidental mutilation insurance

Coverage for accidental mutilation is offered to insureds only (as described above). Their dependents are not covered.
