When returning home after a long trip abroad, there’s always an adjustment period. It also takes time for your provincial health insurance coverage to kick in.
Canadian insurance companies offer a great deal of individual health coverage policies for Canadians returning from abroad or from a different Canadian province or territory.
It’s important to contact the province or territory you intend to live in to discover how long you’ll be without medical coverage. It’s a good idea to seek supplementary medical insurance to cover you during your waiting period.
You should also consider taking out insurance before you get back because it takes 48 business hours for the coverage to take effect.
