Possum and Peter:
You know you are both saying the same thing . But what we are not doing is answering the original post. Is his Medicare valid in Canada?

Thanks Tom. That is exactly the info I was looking for. Guess we will be looking into a supplemental policy for our trip through Canada.

You may want to quit while you are still behind.

I think you plan to get Canadian health care service in the future so I contacted an old colleague to get the most up to date rules for anyone thinking of attempting this in the near future. here's his answer

Dennis, long time no hear. In regards your queries;
Who is Eligible?
An individual must be a resident of B.C. in order to qualify for medical coverage under MSP. A resident is a person who meets all of the following conditions:
  • must be a citizen of Canada or be lawfully admitted to Canada for permanent residence;
  • must make his or her home in B.C.;
  • must be physically present in B.C. at least six months in a calendar year; and
  • dependents of MSP beneficiaries are eligible for coverage if they are residents of B.C.
Certain other individuals, such as some holders of study and/or work permits, or working permits on working holiday programs, which are issued under the federal Immigration and Refugee Protection Act are deemed to be residents, but tourists or visitors to B.C. do not qualify. If you are uncertain about your eligibility status, contact MSP for assistance.

Dependent - includes a spouse and children who are B.C. residents.

Spouse - means a resident who is either married to or is living and cohabiting in a marriage-like relationship with the applicant and may be of the same gender as the applicant. (Note: in the case of divorce, the former spouse is no longer eligible for coverage as a dependent and must apply for separate coverage.)

Child - means a resident who is the legal ward or child of the applicant, is supported by the applicant, is neither married nor living and cohabiting in a marriage-like relationship, and is either age 18 or younger or age 19 to 24 and attending school or university full-time.

I know you are speculating about your contact thinking this way but unless he/she/they move back to Canada I do not believe that they would qualify

Please note I did remove name of my contact as it is not relevant to the issue.

Hey Possum, speaking of relevency, your post is not relevent to issue at hand. I could have sent you the same info if you had asked, and thankyou for your concern, but I do qualify for medical coverage on both sides of the fence. Hmmmmm.....how could this be?

We have a Medicare Advantage plan. It pays for emergencies in Canada, and other foreign countries, for that matter. Does not pay for more routine stuff, though.

Best regards,
