Well if I get the standard insurance covering working without pre existing and if, after 3 months (depending what province) I am entitled to a health care plan, then I will be ok to get medication I am already on?

Have you read the Wiki about healthcare in Canada? That will explain that prescriptions aren't usually covered by provincial healthcare anyway, so it'll be something you have to pay for unless you have insurance covering it.

HTH.

I've already said I don't have any problem with paying for prescriptions. But I will be required to have a blood sample before I am prescribed any medication. This is what I'm clarifying: If I will have to have insurance with a pre existing medical condition to cover this or if I have insurance with out a pre existing medical condition will I be ok to have the blood sample on A health care plan. Seeing as I won't have to have the blood sample until I have been there for 4/5 months

I'd wait until you see how much they are before saying that.

hi, i also suffer from P and can asure you 1tube of betnovate cream costs around $90 FROM PHARMACY
.
i would guess you are taking methotrexate if you are on 3mnth tests?
would imagine that you would pay for bloodtests.
i only took met..for 3days ,found out i was allergic to it big time
.
wasnt s o bad as company pays 100% of perscriptions.
still, i bought a NB uv 10 lamp system sooo dont need creams etc any more.
point being if you move to a major city they will have uv systems available to rent ..and no longer need met/creams atc.

Hi thanks for that! Another complication to the story is that my mum and brother have skin cancer so as a precaution I'm not allowed the uv treatment any more lol. Yeah it's methotrexate. It's a heaven send! Been on it 4 years now. I don't need to bother with creams etc as the tablets work so well. If I get an insurance with pre ex does it cover the costs of everything?

So long as any pre existing has been stable for at least 90 days. Any changes or new conditions, referrals to specialists within 90 days, most insurers (if not all) won't cover. Any changes or new conditions you are aware of even if not reported and the insurer finds out won't be covered either. You have an obligation to report everything to the insurer for coverage to be valid.
