So you are after TRAVEL insurance as they are just 'visiting' (i.e. and NOT 'gap insurance' until Canadian provincial insurance kicks in??Hi all, my partner will be visiting me in Canada for a few months while our application proceeds, I'm just wondering if yall have any suggestions for travel/health insurance? Any cheap but decent plans? Thanks for any tips
Gap insurance is basically Health insurance which covers what is not covered under Provincial Health Insurance Plan (PHIP). These health insurances are valid only if the insured person has PHIP. If not, he will not be able to get covered with the Health insurance. If you are working as a full-time, you can check with your employer if they offer any Replacement Health Insurance plan, which will be valid only if your partner is a PR and it will cover only during the duration until PHIP kicks in.Yeah just travel insurance for now until the PR comes along and then we'll sort out some gap insurance. I guess I can ask about gap insurance, is it offered by lots of companies or is it some canadian govt offering?
Gap insurance only covers you if you are resident in the province, not visiting. If your partner is a visitor, the need travel insurance. Is your partner by any chance 'visiting under dual intent'???Yeah just travel insurance for now until the PR comes along and then we'll sort out some gap insurance. I guess I can ask about gap insurance, is it offered by lots of companies or is it some canadian govt offering?
Relevant stuff for AB health care here:Oh she's a resident of the UK, we'll be living in Alberta.she'll be visiting not under dual intent tho, so we'll see what UK travel insurance is best. Thanks for all the info!
