Health and dental insurance

Cover family medical costs

Don’t have group benefits or losing coverage? An individual plan can help.  

What is health and dental insurance?

It helps pay for things provincial health care plans don’t cover: prescription drugs, dental, hospital, vision, paramedical and ambulance services. Coverage is similar to a group benefits plan. 

Why do I need health and dental insurance?

  • You’re retiring

    You need coverage to replace your previous group benefits

  • You’re losing coverage

    You need to replace previous coverage

  • You’re self-employed or not eligible for group benefits

    You need coverage for you and your family

What kinds of health and dental plans are available?

There are plans to suit your needs and budget. Coverage is guaranteed for some plans and you qualify even with pre-existing medical conditions.
