What are your alternatives?
Consider private insurance.
Many employers provide group insurance for their employees. Or you can arrange individual insurance on your own, directly with an insurance company.
You may have private insurance coverage from more than one source. For example,
Insurers have double coverage rules - which steps in first and which second (usually based on the insurance policy holders' dates of birth).
If you already have insurance from one source, consider whether it's worth purchasing your own. Another alternative is to self-insure whatever the insurance won't cover.
In Canada, we have a socialized health system that provides coverage to all Canadian residents.
The health care system only covers basic health services, but you may have expenses that aren't covered, like medications, medical devices, private clinic visits / private hospital stays, adult dental / eye care, and certain physiotherapy / naturophathic / specialist appointments.
