Health Questionnaire Required
The ZONE 5 Choice health insurance plan offers comprehensive coverage for prescription drugs and dental care, vision care, extended health care and emergency medical travel coverage. We’ll ask you to answer some health questions when you apply for this insurance plan, but we keep it as simple as possible.
Health Questionnaire Required
Your health will be evaluated. If you have medical conditions when you apply, you will receive an offer for coverage that excludes prescription medications that treat your pre-existing medical conditions.
SureHealth plans offer coverage for generic prescription medications that are approved for use in Canada, have a DIN, require a prescription by law and have been prescribed by an authorized medical practitioner. Brand name prescription medications may be covered if no generic equivalent exists. Smoking cessation products and drugs for the treatment of obesity, infertility and erectile dysfunction are not covered.
Quebec residents must be covered by the RAMQ (Régie de l’assurance maladie du Québec) plan. Prescription drug claims must be submitted to RAMQ first. When RAMQ reimburses a portion of the drug cost, unpaid balances (including co-payments and deductibles) will be co‑ordinated so that you may be reimbursed up to 100% of the eligible expense incurred. If the drug is not covered by RAMQ, the standard co-pay applies.
