Waiting for Provincial Healthcare Coverage
Are you a newly landed immigrant to Canada? Or a Canadian citizen returning from another country who has lost your provincial healthcare coverage because you were out of the country for more than 182 days (212 days for Ontario)?
Either way, you will need emergency health insurance coverage for the first 90 days upon your arrival in Canada to fill the gaps created by waiting periods and residency requirements for provincial health insurance plan coverage.
Protect your finances while you’re waiting for provincial coverage
Every Canadian province and territory administers its own health plan and most of them have a 90-day waiting period before you can qualify for benefits. Thus, it is critically important that you find out more about the emergency medical coverage offered by Medi-Select Advantage.
Without adequate protection in place, if an illness, accident or medical emergency occurs while you are waiting for provincial healthcare coverage, you will have to pay for the emergency healthcare-related services you receive out of your own pocket.
