Occupational Accident Insurance (OAI) is similar to worker’s compensation in that it covers medical expenses related to accidents that may occur while providing services.
OAI is designed to cover medical expenses and related benefits, including death, for accidental injuries arising out of the course and scope of the work undertaken.
OAI does not cover any work related illnesses and lost wages.
