The following detail has been extracted from a 1957 copy of the "Be a Good Canadian Overseas" booklet.
Your station infirmary is equipped to look after your medical and dental needs. Hospitalization with full normal obstetrical and nursery facilities and dental treatment is available within the resources of the station for dependents on a repayment basis. Daily cost of hospitalization is $8.80. Out-patients clinics are conducted regularly including pre and post-natal baby care presently free of charge. A free school health service is operated similar to that in Canada. Although our hospital is well equipped for treatment of most illnesses, servicemen and dependents will be referred to large US military hospitals for investigation and treatment beyond our facilities. At the time of writing, the daily all-inclusive rate for these services is $19.25.
All married personnel who are not already subscribers to a Hospitalization Insurance Plan are implored to enroll before proceeding overseas or at least when reporting in on the Station. Caution: Certain Insurance Companies do not give coverage overseas which indicates you should check your plan before leaving Canada. Blue Cross and North American policies are known to be valid in Europe.
