Retired, self-employed or between jobs? We’ve all felt the sting of a dentist bill or the budget-dent of paying for prescription drugs. Without a health or dental plan in place, the costs of unexpected or even routine healthcare expenses can really hurt. Many Canadians are fortunate to be covered by an employer group plan, so these out-of-pocket healthcare expenses are minimized. But what about all those Canadians who don’t have health or dental insurance in place because it’s just too expensive?

CAA has affordable Health & Dental Insurance for individuals and families.

CAA has partnered with Manulife Insurance to offer coverage for Canadians in all walks of life.  For instance, if your health insurance ended when your retirement began, you can now enjoy retirement stress-free. If you’re self-employed, you can now help protect your family against unexpected healthcare expenses. Or if you’re looking for your next job opportunity, this coverage can help reduce your out-of-pocket costs at a time when you’re watching your spending.

Pre-packaged and customized plans provide the amount of coverage you want.

Recognizing that one size doesn’t fit all, CAA’s insurance plans were designed to offer flexibility.  Select from pre-packaged plans or build your own plan, mixing and matching your Health and Dental benefits to suit your family’s needs. Whichever plan you choose, claims are submitted easily online.

Coverage amounts for your needs.

Coverage amounts can vary greatly between insurance providers. So it’s great to find a plan that gives you great coverage. CAA offers Health & Dental Insurance plans that cover amounts such as:

  • Prescriptions up to 90%
  • Dental up to 80%
  • Hospitals stays up to $150/day
  • Message therapy up to $750 (years 1 & 2)
  • Home Care and Nursing starts at $8500 coverage in year one.

Of course, these are only some examples of coverage; plans cover much more.  As well, the coverage amounts listed above are not available across all plans – lower cost plans will have lower coverage amounts. You’ll want to select plan that makes most sense for what you think you might need.

Spouse covered by a work plan? Top up and enjoy 100% health & dental coverage.

No insurance plan reimburses 100% of healthcare expenses, 100% of the time. So often it makes sense to take out a secondary plan to make up the shortfall. When you factor in what you are paying on prescriptions, dental, vision care and more, the second plan quickly pays for itself.
