Freedom to Choose™ health and dental insurance

Health and dental insurance for retirees and seniors

From flexible plan options to affordable monthly payments, we’ve got you covered.

If you think your provincial coverage will cover all your medical needs during retirement – think again.

Depending on your province, you may have coverage for hospitalization and doctor’s visits, but there are many common medical needs that you may have to pay all or a portion of the cost out of pocket.

  • Many prescription drugs
  • Massage therapists, physiotherapists, social workers, chiropractors
  • Routine dental care, including cleanings, fillings and dentures
  • Semi private or private hospital room
  • Wheelchairs, CPAP machines, orthotics
  • Glasses, contact lenses, eye exams
  • Hearing aids
  • Out-of-country emergency medical care

That’s where Freedom to Choose health and dental insurance comes in.

Our plans start at just dollars a day.

Myth busting some common misconceptions about personal health and dental insurance for seniors.

  • “My drug costs will be covered by the government when I turn 65.”

    Some but not all drugs are covered. Currently between 4,500 to 6,500 drugs are covered, depending on where you live. Our plans cover over 18,000 eligible DINs. In addition, your provincial coverage may be subject to a deductible, a dispensing fee limit and eligibility dependent on an income test, which could cost more than getting individual insurance.

  • “I’m healthy, I don’t really need insurance right now.”

    No one plans to get sick or have an accident. But if something unexpected happens, a serious illness or accident can cost you hundreds or thousands of dollars if you’re not covered.

  • “I don’t claim as much as the premium.”

    Maybe not today but what about next year or in five years? Having a health insurance plan in place today prepares you for future, unforeseen costs – especially with the new technologies and drug therapies adding to future health care costs.
