My father lives in Canada and usually buys his health insurance through TD Bank. I think there's a max of 17 days out of the country though -- or something like that. And, he also told me that the woman next door to him bought her insurance through Sears last time she went out of the country. He didn't know how much she paid but he said it was better than any other prices she'd been quoted. Good luck. I wish I had more specifics for you. Debi
Do they travel outside of Canada more than once a year? You can buy coverage for an entire year that costs about the price of 2 short trips. Don't quote me on this part but I think they can stay away 30 days at a time.
Just purchased RBC Insurance Annual Plan. We went to Florida on Dec. 28th and my daughter ended up in the hospital on Jan2nd. The service was fantastic from the Insurance and the hospital. We are all under 55 and the cost was $112. for all three for unlimited trips of 15 days or less.
I purchased medical insurance from BMO/mastercard. I also bought our trip cancellation/interuption and medical for an upcoming trip. Both for the year were under $150, and thats for 2.(I'll cancel the 2nd when we return) but keep the other since we travel to the US 2x+ a month.
We are going to Coral Springs Florida next week.my wife

We are travelling West Jet using airmiles reward miles,they have health insurance available at competitive rates.
Good rate hunting.
All travel health insurance sold here covers both out of Canada, as well as out of province - which also can run up.
Unfortunately, not only is the cost of the insurance "age" and "duration" related, but it's also health-related once a certain age. Most of the travel health plans, like RBC or what CAA & Sears sell forces the person to fill out a medical questionnaire, if they're over a certain age. The results of this form will have a FAR greater impact on the cost than their actual age.
