Does your family have health and dental benefits?

March 2, 2018

While most Canadian’s receive basic coverage for doctors and hospitals through our publicly –funded, national and provincial health care systems, you may still have to pay out-of-pocket for some services. This is why benefits providers, such as Alberta Blue Cross, offer employer-sponsored group and individual and family benefit coverage plans.

Why do you need health and dental benefits?

Benefit plans provide coverage for services you may use on a regular basis, such as the cost of prescription medications, as well as affordable protection against the high cost of unexpected illness, accidents or medical conditions.

If you’re self-employed and not covered under a group benefit plan or if you lose your job and lose your benefit coverage, you want to ensure you and your family have a plan that gives you access to  dental, prescription drugs, ambulance, vision care and extended health coverage.

With a wide array of plan options, if you do a little bit of research, you’ll be able to find a plan that fits you and your family’s needs.

For example, if you’re a young married couple with two small children, you may want to look into a plan that provides coverage if your kids need braces or glasses in the future. Or, if you suffer from back pain, you may want a plan that covers your regular massage and chiropractor visits.  Spending a few dollars a year on a benefit plan could save you thousands of dollars in long run and give your family the protection it needs.
