If Suzy and her husband are not both college graduates (or higher) with jobs already contracted in Canada, they probably cannot qualify the 65 points needed to emigrate and become residents. Unless they divorce and marry other Canadian citizens. Or, declare themselves to be stateless refugees and sneak in that huge secret entrance.

Canada ain't so easy to get into.

Suze, if you think $1000 per month for a married couple is UNreasonable for a company that will provide globalcare--surprise! I'd call that CHEAP for a policy that was offering "major medical" alone, and astounding for a complete medical insurance package with realistic annual and lifetime coverage limits.

That's where insurance is at in the US today. Every alternative has some pretty strict limits, so check them out carefully. The old fashioned "covers anything anywhere" policies won't exist for less than the price of a luxury car per year.
