Hi All, I just read something on this forum about medical insurance that scared me. I'm from British Columbia, Canada. I always buy medical insurance when traveling to PV or Europe. Here is what is concerning me: If I need medical attention while I am in PV, will I have to pay for the service up front, only to be reimbursed later? Or do I simply show my insurance card to guarantee that I am covered? This is very distressing to learn about this possibility after all these years(maybe having to pay up front, that is). I always assumed that I never had to come out of pocket for anything, since I pay up to $175 Canadian for a 10-day visit. Please let me know if you know anything about this. I am 75 years old, but haven't had any problems out of province yet.
