Doctor talking to patient

You do your best to get the most out of each day, such as making healthy decisions and taking care of yourself and the people you love — but as much as we all try to avoid it, an accident or illness can happen to anyone, at any time.

As provincial governments cut back their levels of healthcare coverage, you may be left to pay for expenses such as:

  • Prescription drugs
  • Visits to the dentist
  • Eye exams
  • Paramedical services
  • Transportation by ambulance

Health insurance covers against the risk of incurring medical expenses among individuals. By estimating the overall risk of health care and health system expenses, among a targeted group, an insurer can develop a routine finance structure, such as a monthly premium or payroll tax, to ensure that money is available to pay for the health care benefits specified in the insurance agreement.
