Hi,

My wife an I are relocating to Canada with our new PR on September 10th. Before applying for our OHIP we would like to know any insurance related schemes which will cover her pregnancy costs temporarily.

Regards

Darryl

Hello Darryl,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

We can appreciate that you would be interested in this type of information.

If your wife is currently pregnant, unfortunately, as you may already know, most private insurance companies do not cover costs related to pregnancy as in most cases they consider it a pre-existing condition.

However, you may want to try and contact some of the private insurance companies to find out what their policies are. You can find some information in our Settlement.Org Where can I buy private health insurance for newcomers and visitors to Canada? article.

In terms of what you can do until you receive your coverage through OHIP, you can find some options and helpful information in our Settlement.Org I am pregnant and don't have OHIP. What health care can I get? and our How much does it cost to get care from a midwife? articles.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.

Hi Darryl,

If you get to know about any private insurance, please pass on the information. We are in same situation and would be travelling in the month of October only difference being that we are not coming there on a PR.
