For visits outside the country, get private medical insurance(Blue Cross etc)
A lot depends on which province . Most provinces have there own rules.
In BC , companies like Blue Cross are the admin's for the provincal plan.
All charges go to them and they then bill the BC MSP .
They also deal with the extended benefits that they provide to
different companies.
