Who are we?
Ontario Blue Cross enjoys a solid reputation and has set the standard for health and travel insurance in Ontario.
Ontario Blue Cross, a healthy choice
For over 65 years, Ontario Blue Cross has focused on providing health and safety to Ontario residents. Despite the major changes that have shaped Ontario over the last century, the mission of Ontario Blue Cross has never changed.
As more than a complement to the Ontario Health Insurance Plan, our health insurance products are created to improve the lives of our members. In fact, Ontario Blue Cross does more than meet your needs, it anticipates them. The first to offer home health care, we are constantly developing innovative ways to go beyond the essential. Our health assistance services serve members daily, helping them better manage their health.
Travelling with Ontario Blue Cross
The health and safety of Ontario residents is always at the heart of our mission, even when it comes to travelling outside of Canada. It is with this same commitment for quality that Blue Cross developed its travel insurance products, which are always imitated, but never equalled. Blue Cross remains the standard in travel insurance.
To better serve members while travelling, Blue Cross founded its own assistance services company, CanAssistance, in 1989. The efficient and prompt assistance provided are highly appreciated by travellers faced with an emergency situation and by major Canadian insurance companies that also entrust CanAssistance with the health of their members abroad. Service agreements with the most extensive international medical networks - among which the leading Blue Cross Blue Shield network in the United States - provide travellers with a direct access to the best available medical resources wherever they are.
By going beyond our role as insurer to ensure the peace of mind of our members, Blue Cross has become the preferred partner for members’ well-being.
At a time when governments, decision-makers and the public are questioning the future of our health care system and the means of maintaining access to quality health care, Ontario Blue Cross will always be there to bridge the gap between necessity and quality of life.
