Visitors to Canada Emergency Medical Insurance Coverage
If you plan to visit Canada from abroad or even from the USA, it is important to make sure that you have some emergency medical coverage as you will not be covered by the provincial government health plans. While you may think that medical expenses in Canada are inexpensive, they are not – especially for those not covered by provincial medical policies. Thus it is important to buy some Visitors to Canada coverage before you arrive in Canada, but it may be possible to do so even after you arrive.
The website owner, TFG Global Insurance Solutions Ltd., offers TuGo’s Visitors to Canada travel medical insurance. Visitors to Canada Single Trip Hospital and Medical Coverage is an Emergency Excess Hospital/Medical insurance coverage that covers Insured individuals visiting Canada for single trips. All premiums are in Canadian dollars. Note that COVID-19 related claims are not covered. Pre-existing medical conditions are also not covered and we recommend you read the plan terms and conditions when you obtain a quote online.
The following options are available with most of the plans listed above:
Insured individuals may obtain coverage for additional days for their single or annual insurance policy by purchasing an extension. Extensions are available prior to or after departure, subject to certain conditions.
Insured individuals may upgrade their plan duration or coverage options after purchase. Upgrades are available prior to or after departure, subject to certain conditions.
Individuals who have coverage for a portion of their trip under other health insurance plans may purchase Travel Underwriters travel insurance as a “top-up”, which covers the individual for the full duration of their trip. Top-ups may only be purchased prior to departure.
TuGo’s Visitors to Canada plan is available to non-Canadian residents who are not covered by provincial medical plan and are already in Canada or are travelling to Canada and require coverage. Other restrictions may apply – please consult policy booklet.
