Definition / Scope

Medical insurance is the type of insurance that covers the whole or part of the medical expenses through the system of risk pooling in the health care delivery system. It includes insurance for accidents, disability, or accidents, which is either administered from the government agency, private business or not for profit organization. Here, an insurer has to pay for monthly premiums or payroll tax specified in the insurance agreement.

In the context of Canada, provinces, and territories have their own universal health insurances and the health care delivery system is publicly funded.

Health services are mostly provided free of cost to the citizens. However, it doesn't cover prescription drugs, home care, private hospital rooms, prescription glasses, hearing aids, cosmetic surgery, counselors, physiotherapists, and dental care.

For this, they have to pay for these services either from out of their pocket or through private medical insurance and employer plans. About two-thirds of Canadians i.e. 25 million had supplementary health insurance and about 12% of total health expenditure from private insurance in 2018. The medical insurance market is segmented into the following types:

  • Publicly-funded Insurance/ social security scheme
  • For-profit private organizations
  • Not-for-profit insurance companies
  • Co-operatives
