Default Question about medical

I just wondered if anyone knows what is considered excessive demand on Canadian healthcare system? My husband had an accident a few months ago, he broke some ribs and had a few complications. He is on the mend now but still has pain. I'm concerned that this is going to go against us when we have our meds in a few weeks. Does anyone have any experience of anything like this. I don't really want to fork out all this money if we aren't going to get through! Opinions please )
Thank you!
Julie

Excessive demand is anything that will cost the Canadian health system more than approx $5k a year (can't remember the exact figure off the top of my head, but it's about that). So unless his ongoing care is going to cost thousands a year, his accident is unlikely to be an issue.

Thanks PMM! It's gone up more than I thought, thought it was around $5800.
