Thinking about the Canadian Healthcare System, and especially during the Covid-19 pandemic, we don't usually consider the long waits that we, as Canadians, deal with in the medical system for non-emergencies.
Diagnostic imaging can take up to a year or two. An appointment with a specialist? The appointment may take six months to a year to get in. And then surgery may be scheduled which can cause you to wait even longer to feel healthy again. How long are you willing to wait?
HealthSure Insurance takes care of the wait by utilizing the current private medical system in Canada*. With elective surgeries on the back burner, Canada’s healthcare system will be more than backed up after restrictions are lifted. When their wait is over 90 days for elective surgery**, a visit to a Specialist or for diagnostic imaging, HealthSure policyholders are removed from their provincial medical waitlist and sent to a private facility for immediate treatment. No more waiting for an MRI, or an appointment with a Specialist - or even surgery.
*We make every effort to utilize Canadian facilities whenever legally possible.
