Why hospital coverage is important

You never know when you might need to go to the hospital. From accidents and illnesses to chronic conditions, you may need to visit the hospital without warning at any time. If you are hospitalized for any period of time, you could be faced with unexpected costs that your provincial health insurance plan does not cover.

Many Canadians are under the impression that they have access to free health care. In reality, although we are funding our provincial health insurance plans through our tax dollars, it doesn’t mean that you will always be able to get the hospital-related services you need at no cost to you. Things such as ambulance service, medication and post-hospital care can cost more than you think, and without health insurance, you can be held responsible to cover these costs yourself.

About Blue Cross hospital coverage
