Default BC Health Insurance

Any idea's?

My family are finally coming over next week.........

In BC, you can apply after 3 months for BC medical insurance........

what do you do for the waiting 3 months?????

I'm sorted through my employment,my boss has checked with the company insurance and they don't offer anything.

There are a few options. Try Pacific Blue Cross.

You apply for MSP as soon as you arrive. There is a waiting period of the remainder of the month in which you arrive and the two successive months.

I believe the UK Post Office offer a suitable policy for the intervening period.

I use Manulife insurance (Coverme) when visiting Canada as it is much cheaper than the UK.
