As the article below says, it has come down to a pisssing match.
In Kenís example, DAN went ahead and paid off the full charge to the insured diver directly as a reimbursement.
However if the pisssing match discontinues between DAN and SSS, then there could be problems for everybody.
Of course, if you never need recompression treatment, then you do not have a problem. So if you always dive conservative profiles, then you should never need this insurance anyway.
And there is also the overuse issue. Some people run to the chamber for every little thing, such as some itsy bitsy Type-1 DCS symptoms.
To me it makes more sense to save your DAN insurance for those serious Type-2 DCI numbness or paralysis events. But that is just my opinion.
Here is the cite, and the text of the backgrounder to the issue:
