Stepping up when you need it the most

There are many instances in life where you may be required to step up. It could be to help a relative or friend who needs help moving, or it might be to support a charitable cause in your vicinity. When you step up, the people or cause you lend your assistance to always appreciate the effort. In a manner of speaking, your health insurance plan can step up to help you cover medical costs and other associated expenses. But what happens when you suddenly stop receiving your health insurance benefits? This often happens when you leave your job, whether by termination, layoff or your own decision to do so. When unexpected medical emergencies occur, you need an insurance plan that can step up and come to your aid. Group Medical Services’ ExtendaPlan policy helps you cover costs with GMS’s reliable medical insurance.

What are the benefits?

The ExtendaPlan is the intermediate of GMS’s medical insurance products. It provides more options than the BasicPlan and ensures you get the coverage you need. Your ExtendaPlan coverage includes:
