Health Insurance

Insurance companies should have to do their homework before you go on a trip, so that you know that you are covered. Basic premise here; if they take your premium, then you are covered, it's as simple as that. If they want to check your health record, they have to do that before they take your money and reject you as a customer before hand, not after you get sick in some foreign country and get stuck with a huge medical bill.

  1. Insurance while travelling should be examined by a legislative committee. Many people have dual even triple coverage e.g. provincial policy, policy from work and airline offered policy. Should be clear who to turn to first, which policy pays first. Too much confusion now. What about obligation to call insurance provider before treatment is given - seems ridiculous on many fronts.

  2. I would take it a step further, and stop punishing those with pre-existing conditions. Because many of these people can't get travel insurance, they are discouraged from traveling out of the country, or even taking jobs out of the country (esp in border towns).

  3. insurance payouts are a real problem, not just for travel health insurance.

  4. Travel insurance could be made public (Government funded and run).
