Group Benefits – more than just drug coverage!

When I meet with new prospects to discuss group benefits, they are often surprised at how broad the health care coverage is.  Many people who have never had a group health plan think they only cover prescription medications.  This is far from true.

Some of the areas covered by a group benefit health plan:

  • Prescription medication
  • Home Care Nursing
  • Paramedicals – chiropractor, massage, physiotherapy, psychologist, registered dietician, naturopath, osteopath, acupuncture, etc.
  • Orthotics / Orthopaedic shoes
  • Travel Insurance (out of country emergency medical treatment)
  • Diabetes, ileostomy, colostomy supplies
  • Dental repairs resulting from an accident
  • Semi-Private hospital room
  • Medical Equipment (rental / purchase) – wheelchairs, crutches, oxygen, etc.
  • Eye Exams / Eye glasses
  • Ambulance transportation
  • Hearing aids
  • Speech aids
  • Diagnostic x-rays and lab tests
  • Respirator and oxygen
  • And more!
