PSAC Critical Illness Insurance - What Is It?
As Canadians, we are fortunate to receive exceptional healthcare through our inclusive public health system. Timely access to modern healthcare treatment, technology, services and support greatly improves the chances of surviving a potentially life-threatening illness.
However, the impact of the illness can linger long beyond survival and recovery - effects can last months, years, or even a lifetime - and can not only influence one's physical and mental health, but also financial health. Often additional monetary resources are needed to help survivor's and their families adapt to life after a major medical event.
While access to our public healthcare system is guaranteed, access to readily available financial support following a critical illness can't be assured - unless one plans ahead.
