Have Out-of-Province Medical Insurance Coverage When Travelling
The Department of Health and Community Services is reminding the public that if you plan on travelling this holiday season, you are encouraged to be prepared and ensure you have adequate insurance to protect against the cost of unexpected medical emergencies.
This is particularly important when visiting other countries such as the United States, where health care costs can be significant.
MCP provides some coverage for individuals who temporarily leave the province for vacations.
People should know; however, that there are health care-related services that MCP does not cover, or only partially covers outside the province.
