Insurance

Competitive Prices

Posted date : Nov 7, 2017.

Posted date : Nov 7, 2017.

Fedreal Superannuate Surcharge

Posted date : Nov 7, 2017.

Gentlemen: Re: $40.00 Surcharge With regard to your CSA News article regarding the $40.00 surcharge that Medipac adds to their out-of-province health insurance policies. It is Not Fair that Federal Government employees must pay a $40.00 penalty because the Federal Government has a MEDOC Plan of out-of-province insurance available to them for the first 40 […]

Early Bird Plan Timing

Posted date : Nov 7, 2017.

Dear Bird Talk, We are one of the couples who purchase extra insurance for our winter trip south. The only problem I have is with the Early Bird Plan. This plan comes out in the summer and we don’t know whether we can go south or not until usually the first part of November. As […]

Travel Insurance for Non-US Destinations

Posted date : Nov 7, 2017.

Dear Bird Talk, I was really pleased to see “Cuba a new option for seniors” which will now permit me to enjoy winter sun, provided I can get travel health insurance which I can afford. It would seem to me that your present insurance premiums are based exclusively for those that winter in the U.S. […]

Auto Insurance: How Much is Enough?

Posted date : Nov 7, 2017.

Dear Bird Talk, When renewing my automobile insurance, the agent recommended that anyone travelling south should carry five million dollars of liability coverage. Is this a reasonable amount to carry, or is the insurance company doing a sell job? Keith Johnson Response: The answer to both of your questions is “yes.” There is an old […]
