Ontario Extended Health Insurance

Have you considered extended health insurance in Ontario?

As Canadians, we all have access to basic health care coverage. However, the Ontario health care system does not cover everything you may need. Your provincial health care plan may not cover:

Vision CareCertain Medical Procedures
Dental CareCertain Medical Specialists
Prescription DrugsCertain Therapy Specialists
AntibioticsMedical Travel Expenses

Extended health insurance can provide you with peace of mind and help you pay for any medical or health related costs not covered by your Ontario Health Insurance Plan.

Basic Health Care in Ontario

Canada offers some of the best health care in the world. The Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) offers basic health care and some emergency medial services to those who are covered by the plan. To apply for OHIP, you must be a resident of Ontario and have lived in Ontario for at least 153 days in any 12-month period. Additionally, during your first six months living in Ontario you must not have been away for 30 or more days.

If you have OHIP, doctors and health care providers will bill OHIP directly for the covered medical services they provide to you. This makes it easy to access covered health care in the province. Plus, even when you are out-of-province, you will still be protected for covered medical related expenses.

Why Do You Need Extended Health Insurance?

Not everyone is covered under OHIP and not all medical services are covered by OHIP.  Dental care, physiotherapy, vision care, ambulance rides, private hospital rooms, prescriptions, and some medical transportation costs are just some of the medical expenses you might have to pay out-of-pocket for.

In other words, extended health insurance covers the gaps for medical treatment not included in OHIP.

For some people, medical health insurance may be offered through their employee group benefits plan. However, there are also private medical services not covered by OHIP that are commonly used by retirees, self-employed persons, small-business owners, and those who do not have access to an employee benefits plan.
