for Visitors to Canada
women or wanting to become pregnant in Canada.
Medical private insurance for pregnancy complications is offered by one of the largest Canadian insurance providers: Manulife Financial. They have a great value of medical benefits for pregnant people awaiting their provincial insurance to kick in as well as for regular Visitors to Canada.
If the person to be insured is already pregnant, the Visitors to Canada insurance plan from Manulife will cover the costs of the following pregnancy related complications:
– Abdominal pain
– Premature birth
The 9 week period of pregnancy BEFORE the due date is NOT covered under any circumstances.
Please note that in order to qualify for such coverage, an applicant must not get pregnant for at least 2 months AFTER the start date (effective date) of their insurance policy.
Allianz Global Assistance reimburses 80% of eligible maternity care costs up to $10,000 for pregnancy complications, delivery and other eligible costs. It also goes by the name of the “Pre Pregnancy” insurance coverage.
You can use the navigational tabs on this page to learn more about the available maternity insurance options.
It is hard to say how much the average childbirth costs in Canada if you are not covered by any insurance, as prices range from $3,000 to over $15,000.
Contact our insurance advisors to learn more about this benefit.
The pregnancy complications supplement will cover the costs of related health emergencies such as bleeding, abdominal pain, premature birth, miscarriage, etc. up to the 31st week of your pregnancy period.
This pregnancy insurance plan has a waiting period of 2 months after the effective date of the policy commences. If you get pregnant before that time, you will not be eligible to receive maternity insurance benefits under the mentioned policy.
For example, with the Allianz Global Assistance Inpatriates to Canada insurance plan, the overall maternity benefits limit will be $10,000. If you select to purchase the TUgo Platinum Plan, the limit decreases to $3,000.
This policy covers standard medical emergencies for Visitors to Canada as well as providing comprehensive pregnancy insurance for complications including bleeding, premature birth, miscarriage and abdominal pain up to the 31st week of the pregnancy period.
Unfortunately, pregnant visitors to Canada are not covered for delivery or pre-natal care.
