I desperately need to seek a Urological treatment in the U.S. We have great travel health insurance, but I wanted to see if we could get other health coverage. Are there health insurance companies that will take Canadian citizens?

Hello cmypain,
Are you trying to get health insurance with a United States insurance company? If so, that will not be easy. Insurance providers are very hesitant to accept and will deny acceptance of customers with pre-existing health conditions. Under the current health care bill in the U.S., only individuals age 18 and younger cannot be denied health insurance coverage because of a pre-existing health condition.

My only suggestion is to make inquiries with various U.S. insurance companies, such as Aetna, Anthem or Blue Cross/Blue Shield.
