Family visiting from abroad with a Super Visa?
Get the best rates on emergency medical insurance.
A super visa allows family members who live abroad to visit you in Canada for up to 2 years at a time, and is valid for up to 10 years.
If you're a Canadian citizen or permanent resident living in Canada, and have parents or grandparents coming for an extended visit, you want to ensure that your family members are covered in the event that they require any kind of medical attention. And buying an insurance policy from a company that isn't the right fit for you could end up costing you hundreds, if not thousands of dollars.
The best way to save money is by comparing rates from competing insurers. And the easiest way to compare quotes and buy a super visa health insurance policy online is through Kanetix.ca.
Super visa health insurance plans typically offer the following:
- Coverage that meets and exceeds the government requirements for parent and grandparent super visas.
- Up to $200,000 coverage for eligible emergency medical expenses that you incur while visiting Canada.
- Extended health care coverage for physician fees, x-rays, physiotherapist visits, chiropractor visits, prescription drugs, and more.
- Dental Accidents Coverage, Emergency Hospital Services, Travel Accident Coverage, and more.
Super visa application requirements:
When applying for a Super Visa, applicants must provide proof that they've purchased an insurance policy that:
- Comes from a Canadian insurance company.
- Is valid for a minimum of one year.
- Covers health care, hospitalization and repatriation.
- Provides a minimum of $100,000 in coverage.
- Is valid each time the visa holder enters Canada.
How to save on super visa insurance
Getting and comparing competing quotes is just one way to save money on the emergency medical health insurance needed for a super visa.
If you and your spouse require super visa insurance, bundling your policy may also save you money.
Another way to save money is to buy a policy with a deductible. Sometimes policies with deductibles save you more than the amount of the deductible itself. To see the difference in cost, you can compare policy prices with and without deductibles.
