Canadian Coverage

Canada's national health care system, often referred to as "Medicare", is a program composed of 13 interlocking provincial and territorial health insurance plans, and provides certain common features and basic standards of coverage for seniors.

Canadian Medicare provides universal coverage for medically necessary health care services, but depending on what province a patient lives in, the coverage can vary. Supplemental coverage is often needed for care services and equipment beyond certain basics.
