Why prescription drug coverage is important

Having access to prescription drugs is essential. Whether you have a seasonal illness or a chronic condition, it’s smart to have access to prescription drug coverage for yourself and your family.

According to the Canadian Institue for Health Information, the average Canadian spends more than $1,500 per year on prescription drugs, and this number has increased by 12% since 2005. Without group insurance or private health insurance, you could be on the hook for expensive medical bills. Unforeseen medical issues can happen at a moment’s notice, and considering that OHIP drug programs do not pay for all prescription drugs, it’s vital that you have insurance to fall back on. We have you covered!
