Oh Baby Healthcare Costs Can Quickly Add Up

Guest Contributor June 25, 2019

Oh baby, healthcare costs can quickly add up.It’s understandable that major life events, like getting married or starting a family, can increase your need for life insurance to protect your expanding family. However, something that’s easily overlooked in the excitement of saying, “I do!” or welcoming a new baby home is the importance of having supplemental health & dental insurance as well.

Why is it so Important for Families to Protect Themselves?

Today, most families – especially those with children – live on a budget, and there is a long (and growing) list of health-related expenses that are not covered by provincial health insurance plans, including prescription drugs, registered specialists such as:

  • Massage therapists
  • Chiropractors and psychologists
  • Vision care
  • Semi-private or private hospital accommodation
  • Routine dental care expenses (check-ups, fillings, cleanings, scaling, x-rays, extractions, and restorations1)

If you aren’t covered by a group health and dental insurance plan, these out-of-pocket health care expenses can quickly add up, putting your budget and finances in jeopardy, especially if an unexpected medical issue arises.

Life is Full of Unexpected Surprises.

The reality is that, without your own health & dental insurance, a bike accident, a tumble down the stairs, or a fall from the climbing apparatus at the local park, could be the only thing standing between you and financial strain for your family.

But even routine healthcare-related costs – like prescription drugs – can put a serious dent in your savings. And as we all know, kids – particularly those in day care or elementary school – are germ magnets. If it’s going around, they get it. In fact, in many families, it seems that at least one little “bundle of joy” is always under the weather.
