Healthcare plans in Canada do not cover the medical fees of visitors, travellers must take out a travel insurance policy. While visitors can buy a policy in another country, purchasing insurance from a Canadian insurance company is strongly recommended. These insurers understand the Canadian healthcare system and have the expertise to find the best care for you. Claims are also simplified, because Canadian hospitals know these companies. This means you can avoid paying thousands of dollars and having to wait until you’re back home for reimbursement.
