As expected, Ontario is moving ahead with its plan to scrap a program that offers basic out-of-country travel insurance. Health Minister Christine Elliott says her PC government has decided to make the change after 6 days of public consultations. The program currently covers out-of-country inpatient services to a maximum of $400 per day for a higher level of care, and up to $50 per day for emergency outpatient services, and doctor services. Opposition politicians have said ending the program will hurt snowbirds and frequent travellers. Elliott says a broader public outreach effort will be needed to remind travellers to purchase health insurance before they leave the country.
