We purchased Manulife medical plan to cover our trip to Canada from this website. Although we didn’t choose to speak with any of he advisors, we found the website easy to navigate with policy description available for downloading. We chose Manulife because it allows for online claim submission that saves a ton of time. The cost is also fairly reasonable. We will definitely be back for future insurance needs!
