You are a visitor in Canada, not a resident or citizen. If you fall sick while visiting your family living in the
country, you will need to pay all your hospital bills. Canada will welcome you with open arms, but will
not pay for any medical expenses resulting from your sickness.
How Much Can You Expect to Pay If You Fall Sick?
You can expect to pay up to $5,000 each day if you admitted into the hospital and $10,000 if admitted
into the intensive care unit.
What Can You Do Escape These Dire Medical Costs?
If you could prevent yourself from coming down with a medical condition, you would escape these
medical costs easily. Unfortunately, you cannot do that. This is true for even those people who take
preventive measures to ensure they do not become sick while visiting Canada. It is impossible to predict
illness and it can creep up on you when you least expect it.
What can you do then?
You can obtain travel insurance in the form of Super Visa Insurance or Visitors to Canada Insurance. You
can protect yourself and anyone else travelling with you from unexpected medical costs that may arise if
you have to seek medical treatment in the country.
Who Falls in This Category?
You fall in this category if you are visiting Canada from another country, you are returning to Canada,
you are a student studying in Canada, or you have recently immigrated to Canada. Before you depart
from your country of residence, you should make arrangements for travel insurance.
You need to contact an insurance company in Canada to ask them about the Visitors to Canada
Insurance and Super Visa Insurance. They can provide you with a health insurance plan that provides
you with sufficient coverage during the period of your trip to the country.
Be a Confident Traveller by Obtaining a Travel Insurance Plan
You want to travel all over Canada confidently. For that, you will need to apply for a travel insurance
plan. Your health insurance plan will cover you for any accidents, including dental, and medical
emergencies that you may encounter on your vacation.
Protect Yourself with an Insurance Plan before You Fly to Canada
You do not want to spend your hard-earned money paying hospital fees, buying prescription
medications, and seeking expensive medical treatments. Make sure you don’t put yourself through any
of that and vacation in peace by getting health insurance coverage available for visitors.
You can contact an insurance company, asking them about the type of coverage they provide under
their policy, the coverage for pre-existing medical conditions, whether you need to apply for coverage
before or after you arrive in the country, and the level of coverage they provide.
