Travel insurance has a wide range of coverage like medical emergency coverage, trip cancellation coverage, trip interruption coverage, lost travel documents coverage, etc. Provincial health insurance plans and other travel insurance like credit cards and employee group benefits may not provide the coverage to handle all these travel emergencies. Out of Canada emergency medical expenses are not generally covered by your provincial medical plan and these expenses can be financially devastating. Whether you travel frequently or occasionally, there is a plan that suits with respect to traveler’s requirement. Depending on your needs, you can opt for coverage on a daily or annual basis. When you are planning your vacation or any trip, do not forget to purchase Travel insurance.
Visitors Insurance/Super Visa Insurance
Visitors to Canada health insurance is designed for those who are not covered by a provincial health care plan and need temporary emergency medical and hospital coverage while living, traveling, working or studying in Canada. If you are planning to bring your loved ones to Canada on visiting visa, you need to equip them with a suitable medical insurance coverage depending on the length of their stay here. Medical treatment in Canada is too expensive. Hence, availing medical insurance prevents you and your family from incurring heavy medical expenses in case of unforeseen minor or major health setbacks during their trip here. In 2010 citizenship and immigration of Canada has made a rule that any travelers who have applied for a super visa must be covered by super visa insurance.
New Immigrant's Insurance
If you are a new immigrant to Canada, you would not be provided with your provincial and territorial coverage right away. It would take a minimum of three months before you get your health care. So you should be prudent enough to protect yourself with medical coverage during that period. You can apply for this coverage even before you could land here. Look for coverage that meets your needs.
Medical costs can amount to a substantial loss that not only puts a damper on holiday plans but can put you seriously out-of-pocket for months to come. Often government or company health plans may not cover injuries or hospitalization costs incurred abroad.
