Visitor to Canada Medical Insurance  from Ray Battiston, Canadian Insurance Broker
  

Visitors to Canada or returning Canadians and temporary workers should insure against unexpected emergency medical costs from sudden sickness or accident.  Relatives of  a visitor to  Canada should ensure that their Visitors have valid Canadian Insurance for Canada or side trips to the USA.   A visitors policy  should also cover  pre-existing medical conditions.  Many senior visitors or returning Canadians have medical histories of one or more of heart, blood pressure, stroke, diabetes, peripheral vascular disease, cancer, gallbladder, liver, kidney disease or other conditions. When shopping for a Visitor To Canada Medical Insurance plan, please be sure to enquire about pre- existing  medical conditions coverage options.

Our Canadian health system is one of the best in the world. But it is very expensive if you do not maintain proper Visitors insurance! Hospitals  in Canada can charge thousands of dollars on overnight stays.

You can purchase up to $300,000 per person limits for Visitors and returning Canadians.   Coverage limits vary from company to company and generally start out at $10,000 or $20,000 per person and up. However buying the cheapest policy might become your most expensive liability.  It is imperative that you secure a policy which will cover pre-existing conditions and the higher the limit, the higher protection you have against unforseen expenses.

Most, but not all pre existing conditions  can be covered by a  few  select companies.  For example, Pregnancy is a common exclusion in all Insurance policies.  When it is available there are some rather strict conditions.  Most companies only provide coverage on NEW conditions.

Premiums are determined by age, limit of coverage, and length of stay.  Sometimes specially underwritten policies for more difficult  pre-existing conditions may be available.   Premium rates will vary only by company or coverage chosen.  Our office is one of the best choices for Visitors to Canada Insurance as we offer so many companies and programs for Travel Medical related insurance. 

 It does not cost any more money to deal direct with our office as opposed to the Insurance Company.  In fact we  are authorized by our contracted insurers to issue the policies on  their behalf.  An electronic copy goes immediately into the  Insurance Company data base, and your own copy is sent out electronically and by mail as well.

Call us today for clear, concise information on Visitors to Canada Insurance, rates and explanations.  We can also take your application over the phone.

NOW IS THE TIME TO ARRANGE YOUR MEDICAL INSURANCE!

If you haven't arranged your travel medical insurance for your Visitor to Canada  trip, you should do so now! As an Insurance Broker, I represent many travel medical insurance companies and plans, which you can purchase prior to or after arrival in Canada. I am not an employee of the company, I am a contracted Broker which means I can place your policy with the best company based on your personal needs.

If you've already arrived in Canada, I do have companies available that will insure you, normally with a short waiting period on sickness. I have plans with no age limits, right to 100 or more! And if you need long periods of coverage, like 365 days at one time, you've reached the right Broker!
