All provinces have reciprocal arrangements with each other, except Quebéc. Makes sense, I guess, since everything has to be in french or else............ I kid, I kid. hee hee......

Evans and her husband paid $10,000 to BC Children's and Women's Hospital on a credit card as a gesture of goodwill and the hospital has agreed to absorb part of the cost.


The couple have since reached a personal financing agreement with the hospital to pay $300 per month for the rest of their lives, but based on the figures they've been given, it would take them more than 200 years to pay their bill at that rate.

Kudos to them for not wanting the tax payers of BC to have to pay. Hopefully, the Aussie government steps up.

Insurance companies are the scum of the earth.

They'll treat you like gold when purchasing it but will give you shit and do everything humanly possible to not pay for anything if you actually do need it.

It's so fucked up

They paid $12,000 for a helicopter in Nepal to get me off a mountain using a satellite phone speaking only to a Nepalese person who spoke minimal English...I can't complain.

Tripped Up - Marketplace

Marketplace looking into travel insurance and how they use lawyers to draft up contracts for the sake of fucking people in the ass.

A typical pregnancy is 40 weeks. The article said she delivered premature at 26 weeks. At 26 weeks it's still considered safe for pregnant women to fly, as chances of miscarriage and premature labor are actually are actually slimmer.

IMHO, most insurance are scams.

I mean, they are private entities whose best interest is not to pay. How the fuck are you suppose to count on them?

The original idea of insurance was good, but due to the nature of greedy corporations, they are just trying to legally rob you in broad daylight with your own consent.

The insurance industry needs more transparency. The coverage terms should be very straight forward. And not pages after pages of terms and conditions.

@Ferrari.. if you read the end part there was the fine print in the policy saying the insurance company wouldn't cover them here.

I'm happy they're not giving the bill to BC taxpayers because that would be ridiculous.. give us another bill to pay..
