Claim examples


Cut yourself while cooking?
A 21-year-old student from Mexico was making some dinner to remind himself of home. As he opened the can of extra-hot chili, he slipped and cut his finger down to the bone, nearly severing a tendon. Bleeding and in pain, he got himself to the nearest hospital, where the doctors determined that he needed surgery to repair the tendon and close the wound, plus physiotherapy to regain full use of the hand. Total cost of this claim was $3,865.


Appendix?
A 13-year-old girl from Korea was visiting her aunt and uncle in Canada when she developed acute abdominal pain. She was rushed to the hospital and underwent an emergency appendectomy. A few days later, she underwent a second operation because of a severe infection. She spent a total of 18 days in the hospital. Without insurance, her out-of-pocket cost would have been $77,429.


Obstruction?
A British mother staying with her daughter in British Columbia has emergency bowel surgery due to a life-threatening Obstruction. Her $372, 3 month plan from the insurance company covers everything – mere peanuts compared to the $12,289 hospital bill.
