How do I pay for my health care when I travel outside of Canada?
Northwest Territories provincial health care plan, NWT Health Care Plan, provides coverage to basic health care when within the province. However, the coverage may not be enough outside Northwest Territories. You need additional Northwest Territories travel insurance or private health insurance to cover you for services not covered by NWT Health Care Plan.
Check the Canadian Life and Health Insurance Association (CLHIA) for more information on the type of insurance available to you when you travel out of Canada. Call CLHIA at:
