I have my provincial health plan (MSP) through the government, so why would I need additional health travel coverage?
- That’s great that you have your provincial health plan. Without that you wouldn’t be able to purchase travel insurance coverage.
- Your provincial plan here in BC for example only pays $75 (CAD) a day for emergency in-patient care at a hospital. The average cost in the US exceeds $1000 per day but can be as high as $10,000 (US) a day when in intensive care.
