Starting a business

I’m starting my own business. Now what?

Running a business takes a lot of planning. Not only do you have to manage the day-to-day operations, you must consider every aspect of the business. Don’t leave anything to chance. Protect yourself and your investment with a personal health insurance plan. Cover medical expenses so that you can focus on your new business.

Do I have to offer my employees health insurance?

No, but making health insurance available is definitely a selling feature if you are trying to keep your employees or recruit new talent. With a group insurance plan, the employer is required to pay all or a portion of the premium required to maintain coverage. However, with a personal health insurance plan, you can decide if you want to pay the premium or if you want your employees to cover it. Find a plan for you.

Do I need health insurance if I’m self-employed?

Absolutely. If you are self-employed, you are the core of your business. If a health issue prevents you from working, it also prevents you from making an income.
With a health insurance plan from Blue Cross, you can protect your health, your business and your finances. If unexpected medical costs arise, you can rest assured that you are well protected for medical costs that are not covered under OHIP.
