Could You Use a Little More Health Coverage?
While many of us working Canadians have group coverage through our employer, our group-based plan may not cover all medical services. Perhaps after a few months, you find yourself paying out of pocket for massage therapy, or you need new eyeglasses more often than your plan allows.  

The gap between provincial healthcare and employment-based group coverage and the real-life needs of the average Canadian family can present significant financial challenges.

That’s where EasyInsure’s Individual Health Insurance Plan helps so many Canadian individuals, couples and families. Our comprehensive coverage package is designed to help all Canadians meet their medical coverage requirements.
