However, not every companies are offering this to their staffs, especially those who are operating their own business, you might not have the “Health & Dental” plan to cover for your medical expenses. Although, Canadians have a good public health system, it does not cover everything.

 

For example, it does not cover the following:

  • Services of healthcare professionals beside general practitioners or specialists (but not for chiropractor, massage therapists, physiotherapists, homeopath)
  • Prescription drugs
  • Dental benefit
  • Vision care

For business owners, premiums for health and dental insurance may be considered as business expense.
