Health Coverage You Can Rely On

It’s your health, and it’s your money. A supplemental health insurance plan is an excellent way to protect them both. Having health care coverage helps you handle the costs of medical treatments when they are needed and health insurance will deliver preventative healthcare tools to help you lead a healthier lifestyle.

When is the best time to buy health insurance? Before you become sick or injured. Once that happens, you may only be able to qualify for some but not all of the health benefits you need.

Why? Your provincial health insurance plan may not cover all the costs for healthcare, especially if more specialized or complex care is required. A supplemental health insurance plan is like having a safety net to protect you and your family against substantial medical expenses. Instead of struggling to pay out of pocket, you’ll know your insurance plan will cover many of the costs of your medical care. Once approved, you will receive a drug card for direct billing, if available through your provider, with no waiting period for your benefits to commence.
