Hey Guys,

I wanted to know if anyone could recommend me on the best health insurance plan for allergy sufferers.

Hope someone can help me!

What country are you in? What kind of coverage are you looking for?

I'm in Canada and I think our insurance is similar to yours.

Are you transfering permanent or temporary? For something temporary, I'd check things like Blue Cross (not sure if that's just Canadian?).

I'm sending you a pm.

If you are moving here for a job, health insurance might (should) be part of the compensation. There are different kinds here, all must be paid for. Some of the less expensive plans require you to have a GP and all referrals (to an allergist, for example) must be approved by him/her. Other give you the "freedom" to use whomever you want, when you want. They all have different deductibles and costs. Find out your options through you and your partners spouse. If not, there are personal health insurance plans you can pursue. It is expensive, but totally necessary if you need tests or hospitalization.

Good luck.
