Provincial plans may not cover full costs for some health care expenses. Without an employer-sponsored health plan, you could be paying thousands of dollars out-of-pocket each year for the services you require.
Supplemental health and dental insurance is a cost-effective way to pay for expenses incurred when you see a health care professional or buy qualified benefits. Plans vary greatly, because coverage of non-core services differs from province to province, and because insurers may offer various levels and types of benefits. In addition, eligibility criteria may vary from plan to plan.
BEFORE YOU BUY - Some key points to ponder:
- (1) YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR: coverage levels, policy maximums and co-pay amounts will all affect premiums.
- (2) CHOOSE THE BENEFITS YOU NEED: available options will range from basic plans to comprehensive coverage.
- (3) THERE ARE DEALS TO BE HAD: some include no cost benefits, and offer reduced rates for couples / family plans.
- (4) IF YOU’RE LOSING A GROUP PLAN: some plans help you maintain coverage with benefits similar to what you have.
Benefits that may receive limited coverage from a government health plan can include dental care, vision care, and prescription drugs. To find out what your province may and may not pay for, details on the covered products and services, coverage levels and eligibility criteria are posted on all provincial and territorial health insurance plan websites.
GREAT RESOURCE: The Canadian Life and Health Insurance Association posted a helpful “Guide to supplementary health insurance” on their website: www.clhia.ca
A FINAL WORD: The McLennan Group urges you to be certain the program selected is right for your needs. Always read the fine print and ask questions before you buy, because insurance without proper coverage is like having no insurance at all. Remember, your protection is our priority.
