Health insurance for retirees and those planning retirement

Already retired?

Are you already retired? Did you lose your group insurance benefits when you retired? If you’re a senior, the odds are that if you’re not on some type of medication right now, you will be in the coming years. On a fixed income, it’s hard to manage unexpected medical expenses. We have affordable, guaranteed medical plans that let you manage your expenses and get coverage without having to go through a medical exam.

How much health coverage do you need?

The type of health coverage you need really depends on your circumstances and state of health. At Blue Cross, we have experienced, highly trained agents who can help you decide what kind of coverage is best for you and the type of plan that fits your budget. Call today and speak to one of our qualified agents.

Health insurance for seniors

Health insurance for seniors is more important than ever before. With cuts to our provincial health care program becoming more common, it is hard to rely on government programs if you are on a fixed income. With a health insurance plan, you benefit from knowing that you are covered for any unexpected and routine medical expenses. You also know how much money to set aside every month to cover those expenses.

Health insurance is just as important as planning your final arrangements. If you plan for unexpected expenses now, it can make all the difference for your family later. With a health insurance plan from Blue Cross, you can protect your health, your family and your finances
