Default Parent/Grandparent Super Visa - meds/insurance overlap?

Just read through the CIC website re the new Super Visa and just wanted to check the timing of insurance and CIC meds with anyone who has any knowledge.

Parent/grandparent has to submit application enclosing Canadian private insurance certificate covering at least a year.

Then if successful they have to have a medical. This can apparently add three months on processing time.

If they pay for a year of private healthcare, the clock starts ticking when policy is taken out - around about time of application, does this mean that they then 'waste' at least three months of this policy (which they can't use til they get to Canada) sitting in the UK waiting for CIC to conclude processing?

Am I reading this right?

Sorry if been asked before, I haven't been around for a while and couldn't find any specific info here.

From what you have posted I would say it is the classic catch 22 situation.
CIC want to see a valid insurance coverage policy and wont issue a super visa until they see one. CIC will not issue visa until person applying has had their medical done.
Person applying doesnt want to pay for an insurance policy or have medicals done just in case they cant get insurance or its too costly or fail the medical.

Fair to some not to others. The main question should be how badly does the applicant want to go to Canada and how badly do the sponsors want the applicant in Canada???

Good luck in your application.
