New Immigrants

It’s a big step to move to Canada. There’s a number of different categories for immigration with different requirements and it can be confusing. Citizenship and Immigration Canada has provided detailed information on Immigrating to Canada.

It’s important to know that medical coverage amounts vary from $50,000 all the way up to $200,000 and the price of the insurance depends on that amount you decide to go with. Lowering the cost is possible by adding a deductible, which is the portion you agree to pay in case there is an emergency. The deductible usually applies to every claim.

Some of the insurance companies offer family plans for parents and their children, as long as they are younger than 21 and are dependents. These plans usually cost much less than if you were to buy for each member of the family separately. Insurance plans vary not only in their policies but also in cost. In order to find the best coverage with the lowest cost, you can use the Insurance Calculator for new immigrants to Canada. Included in this calculator are prices from all the Canadian insurance companies and you can buy directly online, which will save you time and money.

You can get protected now and make sure emergency medical costs don’t spoil your first experiences in Canada.
