With Canada so close to the US, it is easy to forget that Canada is
another country and even though we feel at home when we go there, there
are formalities one must have in mind – like having a travel health
insurance because the American healthcare system does not pay for
treatment outside the US.

There is hardly anything special in purchasing a travel health insurance
plan when going to Canada that is very different from doing it for any
other part of the world. Maybe one difference is that Canada has a high
standard of living and therefore you can reasonably expect that there,
like at home, medical and dental services will be more expensive than
those in some Third World countries. And this is one more reason to look
for the best, not the cheapest travel health insurance plan.

As far as money is concerned, a regular basic plan usually provides
coverage for you and your family amounting about $50,000 CAD (about USD
43,000), which is usually enough to cover ambulance service, laboratory
examination, doctor’s fees, a short stay in the hospital, etc. But if you
are afraid that this is not enough, there are companies that offer over
USD 1,000,000 as coverage. And if you go to ski in Calgary, for example,
or go on a fishing trip to Ontario, do not let a broken limb ($400-500
with therapy, crutches, etc.) break both your mood and finances.

There are many Canadian companies that offer travel health insurance to
Americans and there are many American companies that offer the same for
Americans going to Canada, so the choice is unlimited. Just visit their
sites and spend some time with the online calculators that allow to enter
your age, the duration of the trip, the destination province and your
medical condition, and in no time at all you will have plenty of offers
to choose from!
