What people say about Samos

A. G.

Ontario, Canada

My employer's benefits didn't cover me for elective surgeries. If something were to happen to me during this surgery, my family would be faced with not just immense grief, but a sizable financial burden. 

Samos saved the day. Coverage was simple & quick to buy online. Samos gave us peace of mind when we needed it the most.

C. R.

Ontario, Canada

We're both working professionals and a few weeks before my scheduled caesarian, we had done some research on education savings & life insurance, but we needed something quickly.

All I wanted a one-time policy that gave my family security & financial peace of mind in the worst case scenario so I could be less anxious for the surgery. Samos turned out to be exactly what we needed.

R. S.

Ontario, Canada

Samos gave me an affordable insurance policy that let me walk into my surgery knowing that if the unforeseen complication occurred, my family would have financial security to lean on to. From start to finish, getting coverage from Samos was refreshingly fast and easy
