Emergency medical travel insurance

WHAT IS TRAVEL MEDICAL INSURANCE?

This coverage is a must-have when traveling outside your home province or Canada. This is what we usually refer to when we think about travel insurance. By covering medical emergencies, while you are traveling, this travel insurance gives you peace of mind knowing that if ever your health is in jeopardy, or you get into an accident, you will not need to reimburse an important amount for medical fees.

Important :

If you leave your home province, this is the minimal coverage you should have. Other coverage, such as trip cancellations, all-inclusive travel insurance and multi-trip insurance, offers more complete coverage.

WHAT IS COVERED?

  • Medical emergency
  • Return of the deceased in case of an accidental death
  • Prescribed medication
  • Emergency dental treatment
  • Paramedical services
  • Repatriation
  • Ambulance
  • Vehicle return
  • 24/7 assistance
  • Laboratory tests

WHY DO YOU NEED MEDICAL COVERAGE WHEN YOU TRAVEL?

This insurance is particularly important for international travelers and students as standard provincial health insurance plans won’t cover most of the medical bills while you’re in another country. Travel medical insurance coverage is absolutely essential as hospital fees can easily climb to the hundreds of thousands of dollars.
