Private insurers are any organization, which a patient or their employer contracts with, to pay for a portion of a patient’s medical expenses, which include insurance companies such as Great West Life, GMS, Sun Life, etc. Provincial and federal drug plans also may pay for a portion of a patient’s medical expenses, but they publically funded and have their own sub-sections in this website.
