Find Out What Your Provincial Health Plan Covers

Universal Health Care is a source of national pride for many Canadians, but it still doesn’t cover everything. In subtle ways, government-sponsored health plans vary in what they cover between provinces, so LSM took the liberty of laying out what you do and don’t get.

This way, you can make an informed decision when it comes to buying supplemental health insurance to fill in the gaps that exist in the health coverage in your province.

    Hi Lynne,

    You must contact the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care.

    “If an insured resident of Ontario takes-up permanent residence in another province/territory, they must notify the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. They must contact the ministry of their new home province to register for health care in their new province/territory of residence”.
