Medicare Coverage Extended For Travellers

Going travelling this summer? You can now leave the province for as long as 212 days and still be covered by medicare when you get back. Currently, the maximum number of days was 182.

The extension is for vacation and visiting purposes...not business travel. Contact medicare with your dates of travel to maintain coverage.

Out-of-country costs aren't covered, except for emergencies, at a maximum of $100 per day.
