Most of us know how important travel insurance is for trips outside of the country. But did you know it’s also important to have travel insurance when you take a trip within Canada?
Although your Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) travels with you from province to province, it doesn’t cover all the emergency medical expenses you could incur outside of Ontario.
You may need to pay out-of-pocket for things like:
- Ambulance services (including transport and paramedic)
- Home-care services, fees charged by private hospitals or facilities
This is why the Ontario government strongly recommends that Ontarians get supplemental travel insurance if your upcoming travel takes you outside of Ontario.
