What is Travel Medical Insurance?
Travel Medical Insurance covers emergency medical care expenses if you are suddenly and unexpectedly sick or if you have an accident while outside your home province. Your provincial health plan only covers a fraction of any health care expenses incurred outside of Canada and it limits coverage when you are travelling to another province. Should you get sick or injured during your trip, Travel Medical Insurance will cover all or most of your medical expenses up to a pre-determined limit. This coverage will protect you against the high cost of health care, and potentially save you from financial ruin should you unexpectedly need health care outside your home province.
