Private Health Insurance
The best way to protect yourself from having to pay for medical care expenses out-of-pocket is by getting private health insurance coverage.
We all know that Canada’s government continually reassesses the health coverage it offers, making changes to some services and cutting back on others. Although Canada’s health care program does cover the basics such as essential doctor and in-hospital care, all too often, it simply isn’t enough to sustain us in the “real world”. Key areas typically not covered by provincial insurance plans include:
- Dental work
- Corrective eyewear
- Prescription medication
- Home care services
- Physical therapeutic treatment
Fortunately, Canadian residents can purchase extended medical insurance through private health benefits providers, as a means to supplement the government’s programs.
Who can benefit most?
Private health insurance coverage is ideal for people who rely solely on provincial health insurance, like:
- Those without employee health benefits at work
- Small business owners, the self-employed, free-lancers and people who work on contract
- Those losing group health benefits due to career change or retirement
- Those who need to top-up a limited employee health benefits plan
