Thinking of a road trip to Florida this fall,however im on dialysis and will need to stop for a session every 3 days, was wondining if the US dialysis center directly bills Quebec Health care or do i have to pay up front and try to get reimbursed on my return?
Thanks

My guess is that you'll need third party insurance. I'd check with PQ healthcare to get what they're prepared to pay for. Also, just because they may agree to pay, doesn't mean that the US company will be keen to take it.

And you have a pre-existing condition. That likely won't be covered by travel insurance of any kind.

If you need dialysis every 3 days I strongly advise AGAINST leaving Canada if you're dependent on care. Sorry.

A quick google Jambo


Emphasis mine. So what I would do, is find out where you could be getting dialysis on your trip, find out the cost, and see if you can find a third party insurance company to cover shortfall, but that will be unlikely.
Hospital services

The hospital services covered are those insured under the Hospital Insurance Plan, specifically, services received during a hospital stay or at a hospital outpatient clinic. These include nursing care, diagnostic procedures Diagnostic procedures
Procedures used by a doctor to evaluate a person's state of health and to determine the health problem in question.
, accommodation in a ward (a room with 3 or more beds) and prescription drugs administered during hospitalization.
We reimburse, at pre-set rates, the cost of hospital services received as a result of a sudden illness or an accident, as follows:
  • a maximum of CA$100 per day for hospitalization
  • up to CA$50 per day for healthcare received at a hospital outpatient clinic
For hemodialysis and the required medication, we up to CA$220 per treatment, regardless of whether the person is hospitalized.

Im see prices ranging from $500 to $1000 per session, looks like a two or three week trip is out of the question. plan b Quebec city?
