Are you going to Canada for tourism, visiting families or friends, business, work, study or other purposes? There are risks associated with international travel. No matter how long or short your trip, make sure you have adequate health insurance.
Medical treatment in Canada is of high standard. International visitors and non-residents are not covered by the Canadian government’s public health insurance. You have to pay for your health care expenses should you encounter an injury or unexpected illness. It’s important to have insurance to cover possible emergencies when you travel to Canada.
Canada has a universal health care system funded through tax. Canadian citizens and residents can access medically necessary hospital and physician services for free through their provincial Medicare public health programs.
If you are eligible for Canada’s public health insurance, you can apply for a provincial health card. With a valid health card, when you go to a hospital or doctor’s office, you do not need to pay for covered hospital or physician services.
Visitors and non-residents from other countries are not covered by the Canadian government’s public health insurance. If you become sick or have an accident, the Canadian government will not pay your medical expenses, you must pay for medical treatment at point of service by yourself.
Health care can be expensive for visitors and non-residents. You can expect to pay CA$500~$1,000 for a hospital emergency room visit. A hospital stay may cost as much as CA$5,000 per day, and a simple surgery may cost CA$20,000 or more.
In the event of injury or sickness, these medical bills can result in a heavy financial burden. It’s important to have travel medical insurance to protect against the costs that can incur from unexpected medical and travel emergencies when you travel to Canada.
