Health Care and Dental Care

According to a 2013 LIMRA study, about eight in 10 Canadians have financial concerns about the government’s ability to fund health care, the cost of long-term care, and having enough money if they become disabled or critically ill.
Supplementary health insurance starts where government coverage ends—for both routine and unexpected medical expenses.

Routine expenses:

Unexpected expenses as a result of:

  • Prescription drugs
  • Dental care
  • Eye exams and eyeglasses
  • Massage therapy, physiotherapy, etc.
  • Travel by ambulance
  • Hospitalization
  • Home nursing care
  • Travel medical emergencies

Disability Income Replacement

Disability Income Replacement Insurance helps to replace a portion of your income if you become ill or injured and can't work. It provides monthly benefit payments, based on a percentage of your monthly earnings, while you are disabled and unable to perform your occupation.

  • Coverage for different types of disability, such as total disability, partial disability, residual disability and catastrophic loss.

  • Built-in benefits at no extra cost, such as automatic cost-of-living adjustments, coverage between jobs, compassionate care and more.
  • Compassionate Care Benefit provides a lump sum equal to 3 times your monthly benefit to allow you to take time off from work to care for a family member diagnosed with a terminal medical condition.

New Enhancement! The maximum monthly benefit payment has been increased from $10,000 to $15,000.

Business Overhead Expense Insurance

This plan covers business expenses that continue when your business revenue slows or stops because of disability due to an illness or accident.

  • Provides up to $8,000 in monthly benefits to cover your eligible business expenses while you are disabled due to an illness or accident.
  • Helps you pay for rent or mortgage interest, utilities, employee salaries and more.
  • Choose between two elimination periods (14 or 30 days) after which your benefit payments begin.
