I'm thinking of purchasing a Personal Health Insurance plan. My current nursing position doesn't have one, and many jobs that are advertised don't offer benefits either. I've been struggling to find/obtain a job with benefits and, after a couple of health hiccups, I can't run the risks of being without insurance anymore. Overall, I'm in good health but unexpected costs can nearly eat up a months worth of income. For example, root canals can cost anywhere starting from $3,000 for the visit. If you're a contract/pert-time/per diem nurse in Canada with no benefits, did you buy a private plan? If so, what company would you recommend?
Would be really nice to have dental again, and reduction on Rx costs
