How personal insurance can keep you covered
Personal health insurance can help supplement your coverage where you need it most.
Cover unexpected costs
Though you’re covered, you still pay for some of your provincial health coverage. Personal health insurance can help make sure you aren't paying out of pocket for unexpected expenses.
Knowing the gaps in provincial plans and the workplace coverage you have can help make sure you have the coverage you and your family needs.
Help save money
Taking care of your health now means avoiding serious illnesses or paying for expensive treatments later. Personal insurance can help you get the services and care you need without the big cost.
