Visitor medical insurance is often that last thing you think of when planning a trip to Canada.
It's critical to realize that medical emergencies can happen and that Visitor Medical Insurance is important . You may well face an unexpected illness or accident that could, without visitor medical insurance, cost you thousands of dollars in unexpected hospital/medical expenses.
It is the simple and common everyday illnesses such as the flu and other viruses that send people to the doctor or hospital. The cost of simple medical examinations and prescribed medication can quickly drain travel funds.
As a visitor, you're not covered by Canada's National Health Care program. Moreover, your domestic health insurance policy may not provide adequate coverage when you're travelling or residing outside your home country. Visitor Insurance is a quick and simple way of being covered for these unforeseen costs.
There are many companies that offer visitor medical insurance. Our mission should be to find the one that's right for you.

When choosing medical insurance for a visit to Canada, the best way is to purchase it from a Canadian insurance company. They know the medical system and are familiar with costs and common health risks. They're also easier to get in touch with if a medical emergency should arise during your stay.
