Provincial health care plans across Canada have reciprocal agreements (except Quebec), which means that, when travelling in those provinces, you will be entitled to the same coverage you have at home. However, purchasing travel medical insurance can provide you with coverage for those things that are excluded under a provincial plan, such as ambulance charges, emergency dental, and family transportation if you are hospitalized.
