Health care in America for parents

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: K-1 Visa Country: Canada


My parents are over 70, live in Canada, and want to visit us in the USA.

The problem is that my mom is on a list to get her knees replaced. They already have travel insurance, but the health care there has told them that if they visit the US, any falls or incidents caused by her knees won't be covered.

Now they are too afraid to visit and risk there life savings. Anyone know of any companies that are willing to give more coverage? Or any other ideas? Of course we can visit them in Canada, but I don't have any more vacation days this year.

Whatever the body part, Canadian provincial health insurance only covers a small part of your healthcare expenses while abroad. If one is at risk (as your mother is/may be) additional coverage is a good idea. There should be lots of options as this is something that Canadian snow birds deal with on a regular basis.
