The Ontario government provides basic health insurance coverage through OHIP.
While OHIP covers a lot, there are gaps in the care it provides when it comes down to one’s individual yearly needs. For example, dental, drug coverage and many other services mentioned above, are not covered by OHIP. These costs add up and pose a significant threat to the financial security of families.
Group or individual health insurance is a great affordable way to provide the best type of private coverage to cover the gaps in the provincial coverage and have financial peace of mind with even some tax benefits for employers (please consult your accountant). It’s also a great way for the employer to take care of the health of his employees and their families. Therefore, there are many reasons to secure this type of coverage as it is beneficial for yourself, your family, and your employees. Most importantly, you and your employees will have the freedom of knowing that in any case you won’t have to choose between your health, and your family’s financial security!
