CSA President Gets Results in Manitoba!

Winter 2004 CSANews Issue 53  |  Posted date : May 16, 2007.Back to list

As a result of the CSA's meeting the Manitoba Government issued the following statement confirming Manitoba's position on residential status as it relates to its provincial health insurance program:

...this is to confirm that residents who spend 183 days outside of Canada each year, and who upon their return to Manitoba, may be absent from the province for up to an additional 30 days in the remaining 6 months without any loss in their health coverage.

This is a Manitoba Health policy and is not an extension to the 183 days absence referred to under the Health Services Insurance Act. (please see www.snowbirds.org for the whole letter)
