CHAPTER I
PERSONAL HOME ASSISTANCE
O.C. 1332-99, s. 1.
1. This Chapter governs the reimbursement of expenses incurred for the personal home assistance referred to in section 79 of the Automobile Insurance Act (chapter A-25).
O.C. 1925-89, s. 1; O.C. 789-93, s. 1; O.C. 1332-99, s. 1.
2. The Société de l’assurance automobile du Québec evaluates the personal home assistance requirements of the following victims, in accordance with the criteria set out in Schedule I.1:
(1)  the victim sustained at least one injury for which the list of injuries gives a detailed evaluation of personal home assistance requirements;
(2)  the victim sustained injury to the extent that his mental condition could have an impact on personal assistance requirements;
(3)  before the accident, the victim had a medical condition that could have an impact on personal assistance requirements;
(4)  the victim is less than 16 years old.
The evaluation of the needs of a victim under 16 years of age is weighted in accordance with the criteria prescribed in Schedule I.2.
O.C. 1925-89, s. 2; O.C. 789-93, s. 1; O.C. 1332-99, s. 1.
3. The expenses incurred that qualify for reimbursement to a victim referred to in section 2 are determined on the basis of the evaluation results, according to the following formula, up to the maximum amount prescribed in section 79 of the Act:
Total number of points × maximum amount prescribed in section 79 of the Act
174
A total of less than 11 points does not qualify for reimbursement.
Notwithstanding the evaluation results, a victim is entitled to a reimbursement of expenses incurred up to the maximum weekly amount prescribed in section 79 of the Act, where continual attendance is required to ensure appropriate intervention because assistance may be required at any time, in particular, where the victim’s behaviour could endanger his health and safety or that of anyone around him.
The maximum daily amount of reimbursement for which a victim may qualify is equal to one-seventh of the amount calculated on a weekly basis.
O.C. 1925-89, s. 3; O.C. 789-93, s. 1; O.C. 1332-99, s. 1.
4. The personal assistance needs of victims other than those specified in section 2 are determined in accordance with the following terms and conditions:
(1)  identification, using the List of injuries provided in Schedule I, of the anatomical regions affected;
(2)  selection of the anatomical regions affected based on the priority shown in Schedule I.3, up to a maximum of 3;
(3)  percentage attributed, in accordance with the table provided in Schedule I.3, which corresponds to the anatomical regions previously selected.
The amount of the reimbursement of expenses incurred by a victim referred to in this section is equal to the product obtained by multiplying the percentage attributed by the amount prescribed in section 79 of the Act. The maximum daily amount of reimbursement for which a victim may qualify is equal to one-seventh of the amount calculated on a weekly basis.
Where a personal home assistance is still warranted after a continued period of 180 days, the needs of the victim and the amount of the reimbursement of expenses incurred are determined in accordance with sections 2 and 3 of this Regulation.
O.C. 1925-89, s. 4; O.C. 789-93, s. 1; O.C. 1332-99, s. 1.
4.1. Where applicable, the amount of the reimbursement of expenses incurred for personal home assistance is rounded off to the nearest dollar.
O.C. 1332-99, s. 1.
4.2. Personal home assistance expenses do not qualify for reimbursement where the personal assistance services are provided by an institution referred to in the Act respecting health services and social services (chapter S-4.2) or the Act respecting health services and social services for Cree Native persons (chapter S-5).
O.C. 1332-99, s. 1.
4.3. Except where the Société covers lodging expenses for a victim in an institution, the amount of the reimbursement of personal home assistance expenses may be replaced by an equivalent weekly allowance on condition that the victim provides the Société with documents that identify the person providing the personal home assistance services and attesting to the amounts incurred for such services.
O.C. 1332-99, s. 1.

O.C. 1332-99, s. 7.
ADJUSTMENT OF THE DETAILED EVALUATION OF PERSONAL HOME ASSISTANCE REQUIREMENTS FOR VICTIMS UNDER 16 YEARS OF AGE
— Where the independence of a victim under 16 years of age is rated “none” or “limited” in accordance with the adjustment table, only the “no assistance” or “partial assistance” ratings may be attributed to the detailed evaluation table. However, the “partial assistance” rating is attributed to the detailed evaluation table if the assistance requirement is significantly greater than the usual parental assistance expected for a person of that age.
— Where the independence of a victim under 16 years of age is rated “total” in accordance with the adjustment table, the rating attributed to the assistance requirement is not adjusted.
— For household activities (activities 27 to 33), no assistance requirement is recognized for a victim under 12 years of age.
— The indication N.A. means no adjustment is applicable to this activity.
— An asterisk indicates that the adjustment is made only if the activity is associated with the automobile accident. If the activity is related to a condition prior to the accident, the adjustment is made according to the age at which independence would normally be acquired had the accident not occurred.
Description of the levels of independence
None: The contribution to the activity of the child under 16 years of age is slight. The parent must be present at all times, so that the activity is carried out safely and effectively.
Limited: The contribution to the activity of the child under 16 years of age is significant. The parent must, however, get involved regularly, either with verbal or physical assistance, so that the activity is carried out safely and effectively.
Total: The child under 16 years of age is able to carry out the activity safely and effectively. The parent does not have to get involved on a regular basis.
