As of January 1, 2020, the Ontario Health Insurance Plan, (OHIP) stopped covering any portion of out-of-country medical expenses for Ontario travellers.
As such, most of us know that right after we book any international travel, we’ll need to purchase travel insurance to be covered in case something unexpected happens.
But what if you are travelling to a different province within Canada? Does our Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) have us fully covered?
While the government only made changes to OHIP for out-of-country medical expenses, we thought it might be a good time to remind Ontario travellers about what’s covered and what’s not for anyone who plans to travel across Canada.
