Home Assistance Benefit
Compensation and Benefit Instructions (CBI) 211.03
The purpose of the Home Assistance Benefit is to reimburse an ill or injured member for payments made to look after his/her home.
To be entitled to this benefit, a member must be assessed as having suffered a permanent catastrophic impairment, or a temporary catastrophic or non-catastrophic impairment which reasonably and necessarily requires home assistance. 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.
Expenses covered by this benefit are those which are reasonable and necessary and are incurred by, or on behalf of, the member such as grounds maintenance services and housekeeping services.
The Point of Contact (POC) to determine eligibility and initiate a request for reimbursement is the local Integrated Personnel Support Centre (IPSC).
