Attendant Care Benefit
Compensation and Benefit Instructions (CBI) 211.04
The Attendant Care Benefit is intended to reimburse an eligible ill or injured member for payments made to an attendant to look after that member on a full-time basis.
To be entitled to this benefit, a member must be assessed as having suffered on operations in Afghanistan, a permanent catastrophic impairment, or a temporary catastrophic impairment or non-catastrophic impairment, and reasonably and necessarily needs attendant care. Furthermore, at the time the impairment is sustained, the member must have been entitled to medical care at public expense as per Queen's Regulations & Orders (QR&O) paragraph 34.07(4) Entitlement to Medical Care.
This benefit is reimbursed to the member at a maximum daily rate of $100.00 for a maximum cumulative 365 days. An "attendant" can be a relative or friend who acts as a member's attendant, even if the relative or friend does not possess any special qualifications.
The Point of Contact (POC) to determine eligibility and initiate a request for reimbursement is the local Integrated Personnel Support Centre (IPSC).
