Understanding Health & Dental Plans

There are three types of Individual Health Plans, each with its own advantages depending on your situation:

1. Underwritten Plans

These plans offer comprehensive coverage at reasonable rates, though approval hinges on a detailed health history review. While pre-existing conditions may not be covered, exceptions exist with limitations. These are ideal for those in good health looking for comprehensive coverage.

What's Included

  • Prescription Drugs
  • Dental (Preventative and Major)
  • Paramedical Specialists (Registered Massage Therapist, Chiropractor, Physiotherapist, Psychologist, etc.)
  • Vision Care
  • Hearing Aids
  • Ambulance
  • Nursing Care
Optional Coverage:
  • Catastrophic Coverage
  • Travel Insurance (with limitations)

2. Conversion or Guaranteed-Issue Plans

Leaving a group benefit plan doesn’t have to mean losing coverage. Conversion plans provide seamless transitions with full coverage for pre-existing conditions, as long as you apply within a limited period after your benefits terminate (usually 60 days). For those not losing benefit coverage, Guaranteed-Issue plans offer coverage that includes pre-existing conditions.

What's Included

  • Prescription Drugs
  • Dental (Preventative and Major)
  • Paramedical Specialists (Registered Massage Therapist, Chiropractor, Physiotherapist, Psychologist)
  • Vision Care
  • Hearing Aids
  • Ambulance
  • Hospital Care

3. Self-Employed Incorporated Plans

Self-employed business owners have some unique additional options available. In addition to the above insured plans, many business owners may also benefit from Health Spending Account plans that allow for much more comprehensive coverage.
