How much will the insurance cost?
This will cost you $1.84 per delivery and your payment will be deducted from your weekly payment. The traditional Occupational Accident Insurance would cost about $1,500 per year, on a stand alone basis. The benefit of this program that is now required by Airspace is that there are no upfront costs, and the insurance is simply billed as the deliveries are made. As an additional benefit, Airspace increased the base fare of each trip by $1.84.
I already have my own auto insurance why do I need to get more insurance?
Personal insurance typically does not cover the period of when on-demand independent contractors are driving with a platform. This insurance covers you when you accept a request through the Airspace platform and are en route to the first requested pick-up location; continuing while you transport the goods and ending when the goods have been delivered to their final location or when the request has been cancelled whichever is earlier. The period of time does not include usual travel to initial delivery acceptance location or travel from the final drop off location.
I signed up for the One Beacon Health ODICA insurance, when will I start seeing my $1.84 insurance charge deducted from my deliveries?
Your $1.84 per delivery will start being deducted July 28th; so, you will see your deduction reflected on your emailed payment statement the following Tuesday.
Now that I have occupational accident insurance, do I still need to maintain my personal auto insurance?
Yes, per state law, in order to drive your vehicle, you must have your own auto insurance.
What does the insurance cover?
The Occupational Accident program provides the following benefits:
Accidental Death & Dismemberment
Accident Medical Expense
Air Ambulance Benefit
No age 70 termination date
