Emergency Medical Insurance

Why do I need it?

Provincial plans may not cover everything once you leave your home province or territory and typically cover only a limited portion once you leave the country.

What’s included?

Emergency Medical benefits are offered up to a maximum of $5,000,000 CAD per insured person, per trip, for reasonable costs incurred as a result of a medical emergency during your trip. You can be covered for the following:

Frequently Asked Questions

Coverage may be extended by calling 1-844-200-8959 and requesting an extension before your existing coverage for your trip terminates. Your request may be approved provided you meet the eligibility requirements and no event has occurred that would give rise to a claim under the insurance. If an event has occurred that would give rise to a claim, the extension of your insurance is subject to the approval of the Insurer.

A pre-existing condition exclusion applies to medical conditions and/or symptoms that existed prior to your trip. Please refer to the insurance certificates available to see how this applies and how it relates to your departure date, date of purchase, or effective date.
