Acure Announces Online Sales of Private Medical Insurance

Supplemental Health Insurance Combats Growing Medical Wait Lists

Attention: Assignment Editor, Business/Financial Editor, Health/Medical Editor, News Editor, Government/Political Affairs Editor CALGARY, ALBERTA, PRIVATE MEDICAL INSURANCE--(Marketwire - Aug. 15, 2007) - For many Canadians, timely access to medical services is emerging as the number one concern in healthcare. "Will the system be able to deliver the care I need, when I need it?" While governments are scrambling to establish "acceptable" wait times, the question remains unanswered: "Acceptable to whom?" To those not currently on waitlists for medical services who are establishing the guidelines, or to those whose mobility, income and quality of life are being negatively impacted while precious weeks, months and years are slipping by?

The alternative to waiting in the system is to receive private healthcare. However, without private insurance, only the wealthiest can obtain treatment from private establishments. Acure's Medical Access Insurance (MAI) enables every Western Canadian to receive rapid access to consultation, diagnostics and surgery.

Acure Health Corp. has now made it even easier for Western Canadians to obtain MAI by providing an instant ONLINE APPLICATION.

Acure's Medical Access Insurance (MAI) program is focused on over 135 health conditions which negatively impact a person's quality of life - many of which are subject to long wait lists for diagnosis or treatment within the public system. MAI offers a practical and affordable insurance product, a network of medical practitioners and associated facilities and the management expertise required to efficiently coordinate access to medical services. Acure works within the confines of the Canada Health Act and in compliance with all federal and provincial legislation.
