US citizens are not covered in Canada with their US domestic plan and Canada does not cover Non Canadians under the public health care system in Canada. US residents have to pay out of pocket during their stay in Canada for any medical expenses incurred. Purchasing a Travel Insurance will not only provide coverage for unexpected sickness and injury but will help you choose a good provider and put your mind at ease.
We have had customers call us to buy travel insurance from the US-Canadian border as the authorities have insisted on adequate travel insurance for their stay in Canada.
There are several short term travel plans available on our website. Please have a look at these popular health/travel insurance plans suitable to visitors to Canada:
US citizens or US permanent residents (Green Card holders) visiting Canada for a sojourn of less than 180 days do not need a visa. Canadian law requires everyone entering Canada carry both proof of citizenship and identity. US citizens visiting Canada from a third country must have a valid passport. Both the governments of America and Canada urge frequent travelers to join the NEXUS trusted traveler program. NEXUS member receive a travel card that allows expedited border crossings for both private and commercial travelers through both the USA and Canadian border controls. If a US citizen traveling from USA to Canada does not have a valid passport, he/she can show a government issued proof of ID (e.g. driver's license) or US birth certificate, naturalization certificate or expired passport.
Travel medical insurance coverage is strongly recommended by the US consulate for US citizens visiting Canada. US citizens must be aware that domestic US health insurance plans do not cover the insured outside the United States. US medicare program also does not provide coverage for hospital or health care outside the USA. Since Canada has socialized healthcare, the healthcare system in Canada can refuse to pay for non Canadians health treatment. In this context travel medical insurance is useful to pay medical bills in case of hospitalization, evacuation, repatriation, accidental death and dismemberment.
Canadians travel across the southern border to the US on a regular basis. The reasons for travel can vary, be it for warmer weather for the snowbirds, or simply a short vacation, or travel for work, business and corporate meetings. Whatever the reason for travel, it is important to buy proper health insurance with adequate coverage in the United States. The "Canadian government authorities advise Canadians to buy travel insurance" while traveling overseas from Canada. Given the high cost of healthcare in the US, it is not worth the risk of being uninsured while visiting the United States.
