My daughter is moving from Ontario to BC on April 15th. Unfortunately she had an accident and fractured her wrist on March 14th and her cast can't come off for 6 to 8 weeks. Will she be covered for her cast removal at a fracture clinic in a BC hospital?
"The Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) pays for most of your health care costs when you are outside of Ontario but still in Canada. OHIP only pays for some services when you travel outside of Canada."
"All provinces and territories participate in reciprocal hospital billing agreements to enable insured residents to receive insured outpatient and insured inpatient hospital services in publicly-funded (i.e., not private) hospitals. You should verify that the hospital participates in a reciprocal hospital billing agreement."
You can contact the ServiceOntario INFOline at 1-866-532-3161 for further information about your daughter's situation.
The BC government's website has information about health coverage when you are moving to BC from another Canadian province.
