Your Provincial insurance does not cover your travel plans outside your province. For example travel outside the province of Ontario and OHIP will only cover the cost of what it would be if you were at home. If you are within Canada the cost will be the difference to that Provincial plan.
However if traveling outside of Canada the difference in costs will probably be staggering and could leave you financially broke. Travel Insurance provides an important component to your overall healthy financial plan. Don’t take a chance, don’t second guess the necessity… Travel with Peace of Mind.
