Provincial health insurance plans- Canada Health Act.

Dear bird talk, I believe the provincial health insurance plans should be prepared to provide cost protection for medical services outside the home province up to what is assessed as the cost to provide the service within the province. this would significantly reduce the cost of insurance from private insurers. snowbirds and others travelling outside the province are entitled to health-care cost up to the level that would be incurred for services within the province.

Ed: And that IS the law as set out in the Canada Health Act. Most provinces are breaking the law and we are continuously trying to fix it for all Canadians!
