Health Insurance: Why it is Important

Health insurance is important, even for Canadians. While our health care system may be widely lauded for providing medical services to nearly everyone living in the country, there are many things it does not cover.

Affordable Health InsuranceMost provincial health insurance plans will not cover the cost of prescription drugs, dental care, glasses and contact lenses. And if you require alternative medical services such as those of a massage therapist or acupuncturist, you may have to pay the bills yourself.

That is where supplemental health insurance comes in. Supplemental health insurance is meant to cover the gaping holes left by the health care system. As the workforce changes, more and more Canadians are turning to the supplemental group plans offered by their employers, and to individual health care plans.
