Many Canadian expatriates are surprised to learn that their provincial health insurance does not provide comprehensive coverage when they are out of their country. While many provinces provide a minor amount of reimbursement, it is often just a tiny fraction of the medical bill. We are talking about a $50 refund for an emergency room visit that may cost thousands!
If you live overseas for an extended period, you will no longer be eligible for Canadian health coverage. We strongly recommend World Virtual Hospital plan for all expatriates because this will provide both global and local coverage and benefits.
