OHIP changes eyed for some out-of-country travellers

If you are reading this, you are probably a Mainstay client that likely has travel coverage through your employer plan, so this may have no, or next to no effect on you.  Where it MAY have an effect on you is… If you are an Ontario resident with employee benefit travel coverage, and have an out of country claim, then you will no longer need to apply to the province for coverage before your group plan considers the claim. This should make the process faster and easier for employees.

The Ontario government is looking at eliminating some OHIP coverage for Ontarians travelling outside of Canada but it is a move that will not change coverage for the overwhelming majority of citizens, the government says.
