Manulife FlexCare offers three core plans that are designed to provide flexible, dependable coverage.

Every core plan covers vision, emergency travel coverage, visits with psychologists, and home nursing.
Core plan benefits also include chiropractor visits, speech pathology, prosthetic appliances, and hearing aids.

After you've completed your enrollment, your core plan will START on the FIRST DAY of the upcoming month.
You [may NOT] have to FILL OUT a MEDICAL QUESTIONNAIRE in order to get coverage.
If you're an expecting mother and you are accepted into a core plan within the first 20 weeks of your pregnancy, your hospital stay will be fully covered by your core plan.
In addition, parents of newborns should know that they can add them to their Manulife Flexcare plan in the first month of their birth.
2. Level of Coverage
Once you choose your core plan, you need to choose your level of coverage.
Manulife Flexcare offers three levels: Starter, Basic, and Enhanced.
So if you choose Dental Basic, the plan will pay half of the first $1,150 that you incur in dental fees. The total payable per year would be $575.
On the other hand, Dental Enhanced will pay 70% of the first $1,200 in dental fees with a total of $840 payable each year.
The level of coverage that you sign up for will vary according to your needs. Are you getting ready to have a lot of dental work done?
You may want an enhanced plan in order to get the most out of your monthly premiums.
Another example is the DrugPlus Basic, which covers 70% of the first $750 in prescription drug costs and then 90% up to $5,000 per year.
This plan covers generic medications, while the DrugPlus Enhanced will cover 90% of the first $2,222 and then 100% up to $8,000.
