Starting a business

I’m starting my own business. Now what?

Running a business takes a lot of planning. Not only do you have to manage the day-to-day operations, you must consider every aspect of the business. Don’t leave anything to chance. Protect yourself and your investment with a personal health insurance plan. Cover medical expenses so that you can focus on your new business.

Personal insurance is a good option for startups?

Starting a business often involves hiring one or more employees. Initially, it can be difficult to take on the costs of a group insurance plan. However, you can suggest a Blue Cross personal insurance plan to your employees as a good alternative. Once your company’s income is strong and stable, you might then offer to pay the premiums for your employees. Get a free, no obligation quote.

Do I need health insurance if I’m self-employed?

Absolutely. If you are self-employed, you are the core of your business. If a health issue prevents you from working, it also prevents you from earning an income. Would you be able to handle all your daily and monthly expenses and obligations without it? With a health insurance plan from Blue Cross, you protect your health and your finances against unexpected medical costs that are not covered by the RAMQ.
