We’re coming near the end of 2018, and for many individual’s extended health benefits insurance renewal date is December 31st.   Do you take advantage of allied health services covered under your plan?  Considering you are paying into these health benefit plans, often automatically withdrawn from your pay cheque, you should know your plan and coverage, and use it!
