This Advertizing Stinks —-Again

On the 28th February I posted on bad advertizing, making particular mention to Manulife. The full title is Manufactures Life Insurance Co of Canada, the biggest company of its kind in the country. Tonight they were featured again, this time on CBC Market Place talking about health travel insurance. Two families in particular were interviewed. Both had Manulife travel insurance. As an example,one policy cost $2500. Both were turned down because the company claimed the customers filled the forms out incorrectly. The medical costs incurred ranged from a high of $350,000 for one family to $80,000 for the other. If you missed the CBC show, please heed my advice, if you are thinking of buying a policy from Manulife, have a lawyer read and help you understand the policy first. Be careful too, many banks advertize insurance policies for travel, for life and other coverages,  in almost all cases its Manulife underwriting the coveragee. It makes me sick to think of this company hauling in BILLIONS of dollars from an unsuspecting public. We should watch carefully our Health Canada coverage. Beware of mention of a possible two tier system. Manulife are surely targeting that as their ultimate achievement, or perhaps rip off is the more suitable word.
Cheers and keep reading

    I hate buying insurance – especially life insurance. It is like gambling against yourself.

    This said we used PC Financial travel insurance on a trip to the US and although the paperwork was extensive we did get reimbursed.

      Hi Brad Unfortunately with my health history over the last few years,getting coverage is all but impossible and certainly very risky. Nothing is sure until you file a claim??? Hope you have remembered to advance your clocks one hour!!!LOL of course you can always say it was Karen’s fault. Cheers Ben

    Before you settle on one insurance company make sure you know you’re getting the best policy for you and your family. IntelliQuote can offer you free quotes from many different providers to compare. If you have any questions you can call and talk to a person without feeling pressured to pick right away. It’s a big decision. Feel confident and informed.

  4. A fascinating discussion is definitely worth comment.
    There’s no doubt that that you ought to publish more on this topic, it might not be a taboo matter but usually folks don’t talk about these subjects. To the next! Cheers!!

  5. I have been browsing online more than 3 hours these days, but I by no means found any fascinating article like yours. It’s beautiful worth sufficient for me. In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made just right content material as you probably did, the web can be a lot more helpful than ever before.
