The cost of health insurance per month in Alberta depends on a variety of factors, such as age, how many people in your family need coverage, where you live and the type of coverage you get.
For most Albertans, the cost of health insurance is covered by the Alberta Health Care Insurance Plan (AHCIP). This plan is available to all Albertans who are Canadian citizens or permanent residents. Under the AHCIP, basic health care coverage is free.
If you need more coverage than what is provided under AHCIP, you may have to purchase private health insurance. The cost of private health insurance will depend on the type of coverage you choose and the insurer. Generally, the monthly cost of private health insurance can range from $100 to $1000 per month, depending on the type of coverage you decide to purchase.
If you need help with the cost of health insurance, you may be eligible for the Alberta Health Benefit Plan. This plan offers benefits such as coverage for prescription drugs, dental care, vision care and medical travel. To find out more about the Alberta Health Benefit Plan, you can contact Alberta Health Services directly or visit their website: https://www.albertahealthservices.ca/infoway/1221.asp.
