Did you know that OHIP covers some expenses while travelling? The problem is that it only covers a small portion of the expenses incurred if you are sick or injured when you are away. It is important to buy travel insurance for any trip outside of your home province. A hospital stay in the US can run in excess of ten thousand dollars per day and OHIP only covers a small percentage of the bill. Therefore, youneed to make sure that you are covered. The price increases with age and health complications, but it is still important that you buy coverage. Every province has a reciprocal agreement with Ontario, so most things are covered, but there are still gaps. Ambulance and medical supplies may not be covered between provinces. The upside for purchasing travel within Canada is that it does not require medical questions regardless of age.
This has one of the smallest exclusion lists and covers most sports while travelling. This is good for any traveler who has not reached the age of 90 years at the time of application.
