“The program, which spends a third of its funding on administration alone, has not historically provided Ontarians with meaningful travel coverage,” said David Jensen, spokesman for Ontario’s health ministry. “Furthermore, the program’s coverage is very limited with five cents of every dollar claimed.”

How Does a Professional Soccer Player Spend a Workday? Should You Lift Weights Before or After Baseball Practice? Injured players arrive early to receive treatments and do their rehabilitation work. Players meet with the coaching staff and go on the ice for a brief, light mid-day workout.
A majority of local travellers, especially to the U.S., are often covered by private company insurance — often under a credit card company.
Should an injury or emergency occur that requires medical or hospital care, the traveller would file a claim with OHIP that’s already been paid by the private medical coverage, insurance plans or Canadian resident themselves.
OHIP then would determine under its out-of-country plan who or what to reimburse, if anything.
Under the program, OHIP only considered emergency health services which included a physician’s assessment, emergency surgery, tests such as MRIs. or CT scans and hospital stays.
Treatments had to be deemed medically necessary, take place at a hospital or equivalent medical facility and be for an acute illness or situation that was unexpected and no pre-existing before leaving Canada.

It is the same thing with hockey players ; a million dollars in one place is not the same as a million The first thing a player faces is escrow. The collective bargaining agreement stipulates 50 per cent of Players pay their agents between three and six per cent depending on the amount of services
OHIP would pay up to $50 per day for outpatient services and up to $400 per day for any hospital inpatient service that took place in an operating room, intensive care unit or coronary care unit. Such coverage is often only a fraction of costs, especially in the U.S.
“With this limited coverage and low reimbursement rate, OHIP-eligible Ontarians who do not purchase private travel health insurance can be left with catastrophically bills to pay,” Jensen said.
“For this reason, Ontario continues to strongly encourage individuals to purchase additional travel health insurance so they are adequately covered every time they leave Ontario to travel abroad.”
On a positive note, the health ministry has also announced a new program will begin at the start of the year to cover costs for Ontario residents travelling outside of Canada for prolonged periods and require dialysis treatments.
“Our government listened to the Ontarians on dialysis who can’t easily access affordable travel insurance about the need to preserve and protect their ability to safely travel and work abroad,” Jensen said.
“A new program to fund out-of-country dialysis services will ensure hemodialysis patients can plan their trips abroad confident in the knowledge that they’ll be able to access the medically necessary services they rely on.”
The new program will be operated by the Ontario Renal Network with funding from the government so that patients will receive the same reimbursement rates currently provided through existing programs, he said.
