Rehab and the Difficulties of Disability Benefits for Addiction

Rehab and the Difficulties of Disability Benefits for Addiction

When applying for disability benefits because of an addiction, there are specific hurdles to overcome. One of the most difficult is also one of the most necessary parts of the application process – being in a rehabilitation program.  Participating in a formal rehabilitation program or staying in a rehabilitation facility is something most if not all insurance companies consider mandatory to qualify for disability. The issue is that they’re not always available and consistently have long waiting lists. These wait times, particularly for long-term treatment programs,...

Managing Your Heart Health – Todd’s Story

Managing Your Heart Health – Todd’s Story

At 38 years old, Todd was a relatively fit and healthy man. His job as a Call Service Agent in Edmonton meant that he was sitting for hours at a time, so he made it his priority to exercise for at least thirty minutes most days after work.

He had never suffered from this...

When we think of heart attacks, we often find ourselves picturing scenes from the movies. We remember that moment in Something’s Gotta Give where Harry (Jack Nicholson) collapses in pain after fooling around with his girlfriend, Marin (Amanda Pete). He flails about, wincing in pain, trying to deter Erica (Diane Keaton) from performing CPR. We think of the moment in The Godfather when Don Vito Corleone collapses suddenly while playing with his grandson in the tomato garden, dying almost instantly. We may even think of the silliness from Monty Python And The Holy Grail...

Are You Eligible for Benefits?

Are You Eligible for Benefits?

Your Benefit Package When you start at a new job, one of things to consider is what benefits are being provided to you as an employee.  Most people want benefits and tend to focus on benefits for medical expenses not covered by the provincial health plan as well as dental and vision benefits.   Most group benefit plans also include life insurance, accidental death and dismemberment, critical illness insurance and disability benefits, but the details of these benefits are often glossed over by people who are focused on getting the job. So, if you think you have benefits at...
