Major dental services and supplies: (Core and Core Plus only)

This coverage includes major dental services like crowns and onlays, dentures, denture-related surgery and appliance maintenance. Eligible services are reimbursed at 50 percent, up to $750 per person per calendar year. Major dental is included in the Elite plan so you don’t need to add it as extra coverage.

Hospital accommodation: 

This benefit pays for all or a portion of the difference between a standard ward rate, which may be eligible for payment under your provincial healthcare plan, and the cost of semi-private or private accommodation, up to $175 per day for up to 60 days each calendar year. If you select our Basic, Comprehensive or Premier plan hospital accommodation is included in the base plan.

Hospital cash:

This benefit provides spending money you can use to cover costs that will make your hospital stay as comfortable as possible, such as a television in your room, parking, cafeteria costs or babysitting expenses for your family. The choice is yours.  This extra coverage begins on the 4th day of your hospital stay, and there is a 60 day limit. It provides $50 per day, to a maximum of $200 per day for all insured family members. 

Accidental death, dismemberment and specific loss:

This benefit provides you with added financial security if you’re faced with sudden and tragic circumstances. It provides coverage in units of $25,000, up to $250,000. A covered spouse is insured for 50% of your amount, and covered children for 10% of your amount. This optional benefit expires once the insured reaches age 71.
