Medical travel FAQ for International Patients

  • Do I need to be a citizen of Canada?

    No. We are able to provide surgical services to temporary visitors to Canada travelling on a visa, as well as international patients from outside of Canada, including the US.

  • How long is the wait?

    There is usually no wait. The surgical opinion with the specialist is scheduled as soon as both the patient and surgeon/doctor are available. This can range from a few days to a few weeks.

  • Is discounted accommodation available?

    Yes. You can book nearby hotels at preferred rates. We would be pleased to assist you with recommendations for accommodation and travel arrangements.

  • Do I need a referral?

    Not for most procedures, but we may require confirmation of a diagnosed condition from a doctor or specialist.

  • Will my benefit plan cover the procedure?

    Some international benefit plans allow you to claim a portion of medically necessary procedures. Check with your benefit plan or accountant to confirm. Please note that we do not directly bill third party providers. The patient is responsible for payment prior to services being delivered and for securing any reimbursements that are available.

  • Are there any tax considerations?

    Some medical expenses may be tax deductible in your home country. Confirm with your accountant.

  • Is International financing available?

    Centric Health recognizes many foreign insurance carriers, and it is likely that your injury-related surgery will be covered. We do require the following information relating to your insurance plan: your plan name and number, the name of the insured and coverage number. Prior approval by your plan is required, and we are pleased to take care of this process on your behalf. You will also be asked to provide a copy of your credit card as security, in the unlikely event that your insurer fails to pay within 45 days.
