The Risk Is Real, and the Medical Costs are Staggering

Government health plans may cover only basic illnesses. To get life-saving treatment, most Canadians dip into their life savings and exhaust it to cover their medical expenses. Or they need to take out loans to their house or vehicles to remain financially independent for as long as possible.
