The average Canadian household spent nearly $2,000 on health care in 2017. That figure represents direct costs that Canadians are paying out of pocket. It doesn’t include insurance premiums paid for supplemental health care. Why are Canadian health care costs so high? Isn’t health care in Canada supposed to be free? Most people actually pay quite a bit more than they realize for health care. The public system is paid for by taxes, which means every Canadian pays for the system. Many Canadians have extra insurance. This can be through an employer or a private plan they buy themselves. This helps cover the gaps in the public program. Even with public health care and private insurance, many Canadians end up paying out of pocket. Insurance may not cover some items. There are also deductibles and co-payments, which can add up. What this means is you need to be selective when it comes to finding medical insurance. If you’re looking for affordable options for Ontario health care, this guide is for you.
