I am considering side counting aces in double deck games for insurance purposes only. Is this table accurate?

Hi Low Running Count 0 +1 +2 +3 +4 +5 +6

1.5 Decks Remaining 4 3 2 1 0 0 0

1 Deck Remaining 6 5 4 3 2 1 0

.5 Decks Remaining 7 6 5 4 3 2 1

The numbers in the table are the minimum number of Aces that must have been played and counted at a specific running count and deck penetration, which would indicate that the remaining pack contains one third or more 10's. An example would be a 0 running count with 1.5 decks (78 cards) remaining with 4 Aces played, adding an extra 2 10's to the 24 that Hi Low Count would indicate. Dividing the 26 10's by the 78 remaining cards yields a ratio of one third, which would be the break even point to take insurance. Is this a worthwhile effort in an attempt to increase the overall edge?
