Toronto, ON (PRWEB) May 09, 2012
To ease the Super Visa application process for potential visitors to Canada, Kanetix.ca has launched a comparison service offering quotes from Canadian insurance companies for the required medical insurance. Available as of December 1, 2011, the "Super Visa" offers non-Canadian parents and grandparents of Canadian residents the opportunity to stay in the country for up to two years.
For Super Visa applicants, Kanetix.ca has offered a specific health insurance destination to compare quotes for medical insurance that fits the Super Visa requirements. Applicants must purchase an emergency medical insurance policy that comes from a Canadian insurance company, is valid for a minimum of one year, covers healthcare, hospitalization and repatriation, and provides a minimum of $100,000 in coverage. Additionally, for applicants that plan on leaving Canada with the intent of returning, the policy must be eligible for returning to Canada.
The comparison service offers the following features to Super Visa applicants:
· Compare quotes for one or two travellers
· Coverage available for $100K (the minimum requirement), $150K, and $200K
· With and without deductibles
· Eligible for travellers up to 89 years of age and younger
· View policies of competing providers
· Purchase by phone or online through Kanetix
Kanetix's medical insurance comparison service bases quotes from Canadian insurance companies from a brief questionnaire. In as little as five minutes, a number of rates can be offered in an easy, accessible, fast and free format.
