Toronto, ON (Apr. 30, 2017) – The Life & Health Insurance industry is in the midst of a digital transformation. Today’s Globe & Mail features a Life, Health and Financial Security special report.

The lead article, “Looking ahead to affordable medicines for all Canadians,” by Stephen Frank, President and CEO, Canadian Life and Health Insurance Association (CLHIA), addresses one of the main costs in health insurance – medicines.
