Paying Out of Pocket for Health Expenses?

Paying Out of Pocket for Health Expenses?
Do you find you or your family using up your workplace health benefits often? Are you having to pay out of pocket for chiropractic care, massage therapy or contact lenses?

Or perhaps you’re self-employed or an independent contractor and you’re putting off dental work, foot orthotics or new glasses because the out of pocket expense is beyond your existing health coverage?

You are not alone; 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 people. Our comprehensive coverage package is designed to help all Canadians meet their medical coverage requirements, timely and affordably.

We’re proud to offer plans to help individuals, couples (regardless of sex), single parents and families with their health insurance needs. And obtaining the insurance you need is easy: the plans can be quoted, reviewed and purchased entirely online.
