Pre-existing medical condition:
As a Canadian Work Permit Holder, your provincial health benefit plan may take about 2-3 months to start once you are eligible for it. In the meantime, you can opt for a private insurance policy for Temporary Foreign Workers in order to avoid paying out of your own pocket for the medical emergency treatment of accidental injuries and unforeseen sicknesses you may require.
Such coverage is provided while insured person resides in Canada or is travelling to other countries across the world (except for their country of origin/citizenship), provided that his or her stay within Canada is longer than the duration of a side-trip.
That is why, it is strongly recommended that you consider applying for a private Temporary Foreign Workers health insurance plan, while awaiting your government insurance card.
