Purchasing a health insurance policy is one of the best things you can do as a proactive approach towards taking care of your health or that of your loved ones. The reality is, there’s always a “what if” to consider. A seemingly healthy person can develop a health condition that can turn their life upside down.
“If a crisis develops, you need to know your policy will provide comprehensive coverage that results in a successful outcome”, explains Gino Stirpe, Vice President of VUMI® Canada.
