I live in Alberta so our Provincial Healthcare is paid for out of the oil revenue the government receives. This gives us access to free doctors appointment, free hospital treatment, EMS, opticians appointments every two years and regular dental check-ups. If memory serves me correctly, when we did have to pay, family healthcare premiums used to be about $450 every four months.
My employer pays my other Alberta Blue Cross premium which covers 80% costs for things like dental treatment, prescriptions, etc. It also allows me multiple trips out of Canada for vacations of less than 30 days and will directly pay for treatment in the US up to $5 million. I have just checked the ABC website and for $200pa you can purchase annual multi trip vacation medical coverage so long as each vacation is under 30 days. I'm not sure how they could determine how long anyone had been out of country in those circumstances.
These prices may be different for other Provinces and Territories.
