If you’re traveling out of province or outside of Canada, you need comprehensive Travel insurance coverage to ensure that you are protected if the unimaginable happens.
Canadian Government health insurance covers the expenses associated with emergency medical situations in your home province or territory, however, out of province/territory, not all expenses may be covered. Out of country, only a limited portion of emergency medical expenses are covered – here is what the Public Health Agency of Canada says about supplemental travel health insurance:
Do not rely on your provincial or territorial health plan to cover costs if you get sick or are injured while abroad. Out-of-country health care can be costly, and your health plan may not cover any medical expenses abroad. It is your responsibility to seek information from your provincial or territorial health authority and to obtain supplementary travel insurance and understand the terms of your policy.
Travel Insurance packages can cover more than just emergency medical expenses, including:
- Medical and travel assistance
- Trip cancellation
- Trip interruption
- Baggage loss, damage and delay
