How do I pay for my health care when I travel outside of Canada?
British Columbia’s Medical Service Plan (MSP) covers you when you are within the province and in most parts of Canada. But the coverage may not be sufficient to cover emergency medical cost, trip cancellation and so forth when you travel out of Canada. As such, you may need to purchase British Columbia travel insurance when you travel outside B.C.
You can check the Canadian Life and Health Insurance Association (CLHIA) to find out more about the type insurance you need when you travel outside Canada. Call CLHIA for more information.
