If you have Medicare and by Medicare Supplement Part F, it covers up to $50,000 in Canada.

Basic Medicare "sort of says" if you are traveling directly though Canada they will cover your medical expenses.  There is no written definition of how quickly you need to be traveling through Canada, say from the lower 48 to Alaska.  There is info in the Medicare book about it.

I assume you are over 65, since there is an "Over 70" bullet at the topic.

My insurance plan with UHC is listed as a "rich plan", it requires me to notify prior to leaving US, they will cover me in Canada, not to exceed 30 days. Other counties are available, although I have only traveled to Mexico & Canada. Contact your insurance benefits and ask.
