If you travel out of your Province more than once per year, an annual plan will give you better value.
It is important to note that your provincial health care plan will not cover you while you are out of the country. Unexpected medical expenses can run into the thousands $$$$!
It is prudent to make sure you have proper coverage. Group Plans often have travel medical included, and some credit cards have short trip coverage.... however, there are generally age limits. Not on a group plan? Then talk to us about a no obligation quote.
This is separate insurance that can be arranged to recover the cost of the travel expenses if the trip needs to be cancelled, or if while on the adventure, an unforeseen event prevents the return home as originally scheduled.
A medical emergency is defined as sudden and unexpected. This means then that a person should not travel if they are unwell. But what about a medical condition that is under control? We have coverage for that!
We will need:
Insurance to cover unforeseen medical expenses of visitors or new comers (until their Provincial health care starts) is also available.
