When you travel outside of your province of residence, your provincial health insurance plan provides you with limited coverage.
Although it covers most of the costs associated with hospitalization (diagnostic procedures, nursing care, medication
administered during hospitalization), many services are not reimbursed. Non-reimbursed expenses can include ambulance
transportation, emergency repatriation and prescription medication.
You should also know that your provincial health insurance card is not accepted everywhere. As a result, you may have to
advance the required fees and then submit a reimbursement request to your provincial health plan.
In addition, the costs incurred may only be partially reimbursed. If so, you will have to pay the
difference out of your own pocket.
