For employees with sub-standard health, getting adequate life and disability insurance is a challenge. Valuplus Benefits circumvents this issue by offering non-medical insurance limits that are significantly higher than the industry average. We provide more coverage for your employees with less red tape.
CATASTROPHIC CLAIMS PROTECTION
In the small business environment, one high claim can result in a huge renewal increase. For this reason, most insurers have built in catastrophic Stop-Loss Insurance to protect your benefit plan against high, unexpected claims. Over the past 12 months, most of Canada’s largest insurers have increased their catastrophic pooling limits. This reflects the need to pass on potentially high claims, and therefore higher premiums, to the consumers. ValuPlus Benefits offers the lowest Stop-Loss limits available. This can be a huge difference for your company at renewal if an employee or dependent suffers a catastrophic illness.
