Extra coverage should also be purchased when traveling to other parts of Canada. In some areas, physicians will bill you directly for the medical services they provide to you. Other doctors have chosen to extra-bill patients, which means you will be asked to pay the difference between the approved provincial rate and the physician’s rate.
Other medical travel costs could include hospital transfers, air ambulance charges, escort charges and the cost of return transportation to the Yukon.
If you cannot present a valid Yukon Health Care Insurance Plan card, out-of-Yukon hospitals and physicians may ask you to pay directly for their services, or they may bill you instead of the Yukon government. Physicians and hospitals in most parts of Canada will accept your health care card as proof they will be paid.
