In other words, the provinces do not have individual agreements with countries, but they are obliged to offer care at the domestic rate and perhaps not cover everything. Below you will find the list of standard hospital services covered by mutual billing agreements: provincial health care is not reimbursed for services that are not deemed medically necessary; Coverage is usually only extended in an emergency. You have to pay all bills that do not meet this requirement, which can mean considerable amounts of money. Medical emergencies can occur at any time and, in extreme cases, result in a huge financial burden. The cost of prescription drugs, ground rescue services and other incidental expenses, if you are facing sudden and unexpected illnesses, can add up quickly, as most provincial/territorial health plans do not cover these services while you travel out of province/territory. The good news is that many emergency medical insurances offer coverage for ambulance services, prescription drugs, and other additional medical services. Purchasing the right emergency medical insurance for you before leaving your home province/home country provides you with the necessary coverage and better security. To learn more about the coverage conditions under your provincial/territorial health plan, visit your provincial/territorial website for details.

If you do not present your provincial/territorial health card at the time of the required treatment, the hospital or physician may ask you to pay for out-of-province services in advance and claim reimbursement from your provincial or territorial health insurance. . . .
