As Canadians, we enjoy great provincial health plans. But we all know the government doesn’t cover all of our health care needs.
Just think of the many expenses we may have to pay for with our hard-earned money:
- Prescription drugs
- Hearing aids
- Specialists and therapists like psychologists, massage therapists and physiotherapists
- Dental care
- Vision care, including eye exams
- Ambulance services
- Homecare and nursing
That’s why the average Canadian household spent $1,616 on health and dental expenses in 2010.1
Thankfully, there's a variety of health and dental plans, to help cover costs like these. And with the wide variety of plans, you’re sure to find the right one to suit your needs and budget.
