Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2015: Traveling to Canada for the National Tour? Food for Thought, Health Insurance

If you are traveling to Cochrane for the National Tour next month you might consider purchasing a "Canadian Heath Insurance Visitors Policy". During the last tour at Pincher Creek, I became ill and had to go to the Emergency room. They would not except my personal health insurance in Canada and I had to pay cash up front for both hospital and doctor. (NOT CHEAP)

You can purchase a very inexpensive travelers policy online through various companies. I just purchased a $50,000.00 policy for $44.20 underwritten by Manulife Financial.

This is just advise, I'm in no way connected to the insurance industry.

Good advice Mike. I always do the same when I visit America. There are lots of sources for this insurance nowadays. I actually phone my bank for insurance as I'm heading towards the border. It's easy to skip this if you're young but, your car is not and a crash on tour can do some expensive damage to you.

Mike: Now you got me thinking. We are going to Canada for a week fishing and I recently was diagnosed with AFIB. I believe Medicare is not accepted in Canada, and only good in the U.S. Now maybe my personal health insurance is not either? Will need to check into this soon.
I plan on starting work on the 26 this month.
Thanks for the heads up!
Chuck

Chuck - I hope you have warmer weather than the day you picked it up! Was that ever cold! I was amazed that the car started up with no problem.

Mike: It is bound to be warmer that last December. Right now we have 94 degrees in SD; we are not used to this heat yet as it has been a wet, cold, spring for the most part. Tough to work on cars at 94.
