Buy the right health insurance coverage

You must buy health insurance coverage for the entire duration of your stay in Canada. Otherwise, the permit issued at the border could be valid only for the length of the policy term. For instance, if you’re staying in Canada for a year, you must buy a 12-month insurance policy. If you have a 24-month WHP and if you only buy a 6-month or 12-month insurance policy, the border services officer may issue a nonrenewable six-month or 12-month WHP.

Always review the terms and conditions of your insurance policy. The amount of risk or liability covered varies greatly from plan to plan and it’s important to take note of exclusions. For instance, most travel insurances don’t cover pre-existing conditions, i.e. a condition that existed before the start date of the insurance plan. If you do have a chronic medical condition, be aware that prescription drug costs may not be covered when you’re in Canada. Incidentally, birth control isn’t usually covered either.
