Health Insurance Plans for Small Businesses

Your provincial insurance plan may pay for medically necessary care, but it doesn’t cover many other services that can threaten your health or your employee’s health, ultimately affecting your company’s bottom line. For example, it doesn’t cover the cost of prescription drugs, dental care, routine eye exams, glasses, contact lenses, hearing aids and other medical items or equipment. It also won’t pay for certain preventive services and screening tests.

However, with our Small Business Health Insurance coverage, you can receive many of these services without having to pay out of pocket. This can leave you with more money in your budget to maintain and grow your business.

Special Benefits Insurance Services offers you access to many health insurance products. Our relationships with leading carriers means we can provide the right health insurance plan for your unique specifications.

You can’t put a price on your health. However, health insurance for small businesses can make the cost of medical services more affordable.

With a Small Business Health Insurance plan from SBIS, you can:

  • spend less time worrying about healthcare costs and more time managing your business
  • conserve financial resources that could be better spent on building your business
  • protect your business and employees from the financial burden of health care issues
