With all of today’s healthcare advancements, the chances of living past the age of 100 are greater than ever!
Many citizens are misinformed about the public health care that is available for seniors, and whether it covers the cost of long-term care. In Ontario, long-term care is not covered by the public health care system and the government is not required to cover assisted living costs. Though they may provide support to families who are struggling, it will only cover a portion of the costs. This means that families will have to pay out of pocket for a significant portion of the costs associated with long-term care.

Our Reimbursement specialists can help you navigate the public health care system and let you know the different options available.
