When traveling out of the province or out of the country, Travel Insurance offers a simple, affordable way to protect against the cost of unexpected emergency medical expenses that may occur during your trip.
Provincial health plans only cover a fraction of health care expenses incurred outside Canada and limits coverage when traveling to another province. Yet illness and accidents are just a few of the all-too-common incidents that could leave you facing significant out-of-pocket expenses when traveling. This is especially true when traveling or staying in the United States.
Travel Insurance covers up 180 consecutive days and up to $5 million per person in medical expenses. Your finances will be safeguarded in the event of an unforeseen unexpected medical emergency. To increase your financial protection, coverage is also available for non-medical expenses like trip cancellation/interruption and baggage loss.
Travel Insurance is included in most group benefits extended health programs and is also available for purchase by individuals. Individuals who want to apply for coverage or would like more information and/or quotes should click on the following link:
