ICBC Enhanced Care Coverage

15 March 2021
by Bailey Marchetti

Enhanced Care Coverage is coming to BC May 1st, 2021.


Enhanced Care is a new way of doing auto insurance in British Columbia. One that lowers the cost of insurance in BC, but more importantly provides British Columbians with access to significantly better care and recovery benefits if they are injured in a crash.


Under this new insurance, if you are hurt in a crash, you can have the peace of mind that you will get the care and recovery benefits you need, regardless of fault. Along with increased benefits, ICBC has introduced a new basic coverage for your vehicle damage when you are not responsible for a crash. To learn more about these benefits and what this means for your vehicle insurance, visit ICBC Enhanced Care

 I was satisfied and pleased with the prompt attention with which our claim was handled. Each person I spoke to during this process was very helpful.

SeaFirst and Garrett have been wonderful to deal with, quick to respond to our needs and questions. Even better is that they saved us a ton of money on our insurance with their adventure tourism specific policy.
