    Medical Insurance for US Born Child

    Thanks everyone, looks like it is going to be very difficult to move to Canada in that case. I guess we should give up our PR because health care is of prime importance.

    Medical Insurance for US Born Child

    Yes, it is going to cost ~$500/month with $5000 deductible. I believe they will need all medical history with exact dates etc.

    Medical Insurance for US Born Child

    Thanks a lot. I found GeoBlue that provides international travel insurance and I see that preexisting is covered if I had continuous coverage in the past 6 months. Has anyone here used this insurance? https://www.geobluetravelinsurance.com/index.cfm

    Medical Insurance for US Born Child

    Wow this is super helpful. Agree that having a job with extended health care benefits before moving is the most ideal situation. Trying to secure once but difficult nowadays. I understand that ours is a complicated situation and might need to give it a lot more thought before moving.

    Sponsoring child born in US

    Got it thanks. So we need not have spent 730 days in Canada before sponsoring my child as long as we will be able to meet the RO in the 5 years since we first landed. That means if I have more than 730 days remaining when I enter Canada I can immediately sponsor my child.am I right?
