Default How much cover? Pre-OHIP medical insurance

We are a family of 4 (2 adults, 2 small children) without any pre-existing conditions. Does $100,000 cover look ok?

Nowhere near enough I'd say. I recall a figure of $250k for somebody who had a few days in ICU whilst on holiday in Vancouver previously. You need to cover any dire emergency if (God forbid) the worst should happen, I'd go with at least $1M personally.

Yep, go for $1m I would say.

so if one of you gets into a Road Traffic Accident and winds upnin intensive care, you would easily chew up $100,000 in a few days.

Strangely, no one is offering over $300k coverage.

I tried Arbetov Insurance to compare and also a few from the list on the Wiki https://britishexpats.com/wiki/Medic...edicare_starts
