Government Health Insurance Plans
Provincial health insurance plans provide, subject to certain conditions, for continued coverage even when individuals spend long periods of time outside the country. These conditions differ from province to province and individuals must advise the government authorities prior to their departure.
Consequently, individuals who expect to sojourn outside the country should inquire as to what are the applicable provincial requirements and ensure to get additional coverage where required.
