When a person has met the eligibility criteria, they are considered to be an "eligible claimant" of the CAT Fund.
CAT Fund benefits are provided to eligible claimants for the payment of medical and rehabilitative services, in excess of $100,000, which are medically necessary, reasonable, and accident related. The claimant must provide proof that the first $100,000 of medical expenses have been paid.
The maximum benefit paid by the CAT Fund on behalf of any one eligible claimant is $50,000 per annual limit year with a $1,000,000 lifetime aggregate. During the first 18 months after the motor vehicle accident, benefits are provided without regard to the $50,000 per annual period limit but subject to the $1,000,000 lifetime aggregate.
