Healthcare in Canada - what you need to know

what do you need to know about health care in Canada first of all every province has their own programs and there might be a slightly different and today we will talk only about Ontario health plan which called Ontario health insurance plan and we use abbreviation or hip so all hip it stands for Ontario health insurance plan in Ontario you can get all hip when you have a legal status and of course if you plan in to come here as a new immigrant and like you planning to come here at certain days you need to know that you can get Oh hip only in three months after 19 so it's very important for you to get insurance from any private company you can find and you can get different quotes from them to cover yourself for first three months because doesn't matter which status you have and when you come you still need to wait and when you apply for the Sahib you still need to wait to get your free or hip coverage in order for you to get the OHIP card you need to physically go to service Ontario you need to bring with you proof of your residency it could be rental agreement it could be any bill that you received for your utility services it could be any document that shows that you physically live in Ontario at this certain address you have to fill out a few forms and they will send you card even if you got card before three months after you Lincoln you still have to wait until three months pass after you land in here in Canada this is very important moment so make sure to plan ahead and buy extra coverage for these three months also I want to mention that OHIP covers all major doctor's visits like hospitalization you can go to emergency room you can get and you surgery it will be covered like labor it will be covered and sometimes they know they have new changes let's say they all HIPAA covers I doctors for kids until certain age I think it's until the age of 18 and also for the adults after age of 65 so this is very good because before they didn't have this option it's like probably a little bit more than one year in action which is very good all this mentioned above is absolutely free for you if you have a hip card you don't have to pay extra fees for that we don't have a monthly plans monthly payments nothing it's absolutely free for us and it's government funded so they they use our money that we pay for taxes so what's not covered pretty much friends your doctors like cosmetic surgery not covered massages chiropractor dentist this is not covered but if you can find work with benefits extra benefits they can offer you certain programs that will cover up to 80% of these services which is great so when you're looking for job you have to ask your employees they have this coverage that's actually a very great feature because you know dentists let's say pretty expensive here so it's good to have it and also eye doctors as you know eye doctors not cover it for regular people adults of aged between 18 and 65 and again it's it's very expensive as well we're going to leave a few links down below so you can see more detail information and if you didn't subscribe to our channel it's a perfect time to do it right now and if you have any questions don't forget to leave us a comment bye now
