Private Health Care/Disability Coverage

Post by Gordian Knot »

As my husband is self employed we have decided to look into getting some kind of private disability coverage (stuff that normally would be included in employee benefits for a full time employee) but i don't know where to start. Anyone know of any companies that I could contact for pricing and coverage packages??

Great West Life
Blue Cross

I know that London Drugs sell insurance for that purpose as well. If you are an AMEX card holder they too offer extended services.

Thanks Trip. I didn't know about Amex. I'll mention it to my husband. I dont' think Blue Cross offers the extended (disability/life), but I will chck out Great West Life as well.

If you're husband joins his company to the Chamber of Commerce, they offer a group plan for members. The rate for insurance stays fairly reasonable because you're joining a larger group, rather than as a single. However I'm not sure what it costs to be a member of the Chamber of Commerce.

Blue Cross as suggested by previous poster will probably be the best bet for you.
