Basic Critical Illness Insurance Plan
The Canadian health care system is very good, Government spending on health care has increased an average of 8% annually since 1975, yet the system is not perfect and not all care is free.
Did you know? There were over 800,000 Canadians waiting for medical procedures in 2010. Only 20% of drugs certified by Health Canada in 2008 had been approved by the provinces for reimbursement in 2009.
The Canadian Cancer Society (2010) states that of the 180,000 Canadians that are diagnosed with cancer each year approximately 60% will survive. The Heart and Stoke Foundation (2010) estimates that 70,000 Canadians will experience heart attacks each year with over 75% survival rate, while 50,000 strokes will occur each year yet 75% surviving with impairment and only 10% completely recovering.
The probability of survival from critical illness is extremely high, but the significant financial impact of the medical event can be financially devastating. Critical Illness Insurance provides immediate tax-free cash at a discount, so you can concentrate on a full recovery.
