What if I just want ward accommodation? 
Your provincial health plan covers 100% of the cost.
Can I get higher reimbursement from the plan? 
No, there is no option to pay more for higher coverage. If you choose a private room when you are hospitalized, you must pay the difference in cost between semi-private and private accommodation.
Does the plan cover other types of hospital services? 
Generally, in Canada, hospital charges are covered by your provincial plan.
Can I get the ambulance to take me to any hospital I want? 
No, it must take you to the nearest hospital equipped to provide the required treatment.
Does the plan cover the cost of a medical certified attendant to accompany me? 
Yes if medically necessary.
