Her medical treatment included Intravenous injection of tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) and a prescription of ACE inhibitors before being discharged.

Canadians without provincial coverage
If you are a Canadian citizen and have left your province for a certain amount of time, you may lose your provincial healthcare coverage. If you are in-country for only a short visit, visitor-to-Canada insurance will cover you. However, if you expect to remain in-country, inpatriate insurance may be the better option for you.
