Buy Personal Health Insurance online

Personal health insurance helps you pay for medical expenses that provincial or territorial health plans in Canada don’t cover. It can also cover preventive care that you and your family can use to stay healthy.

If your group benefits plan with an employer is ending within 60 days, you can apply for Health Coverage Choice for uninterrupted health coverage.
