If you are traveling outside of Canada in the next little while make sure you understand what you have for Travel Insurance. Here’s a couple of tips:
1.) Check your coverage. If you are depending on the coverage through your Credit Card or group plan at work read the fine print. There are limitations with this coverage, especially with the maximum days per trip it will cover.
2.) Make sure you have the Travel Card with you or the policy number along with the 1-800 number so that you can call your provider as soon as you may need medical help. Most providers of Travel Insurance will limit your coverage if you do not call them within 24-48 hours of a claim.
3.) If you are applying for Travel Insurance for a single trip or buying a multi-trip plan make sure you are covered for the actual days you will be away. And, answer the questions honestly and accurately.
4.) Don’t travel without Emergency Travel Insurance – the costs of medical care outside of Canada is ridiculously expensive. Buying this insurance is not that costly. I know of 2 people in the past few months who have made claims while in the US and the insurance covered them.
While the risks of medical complications from our highly qualified providers are low, all surgical procedures carry certain risks and complications can and do occur. We are proud to partner with Custom Assurance Placements, who administer the Global Protective Solutions (GPS) program. GPS is the worldwide leader in providing risk mitigation solutions specifically for medical travelers / tourists.
Usually standard travel insurance excludes medical travel activities, and thus will not provide any benefits in all likelihood, and certainly no coverage in the event of a complication from a scheduled elective surgery. Further, when a medical complication does happen it is usually the patient’s responsibility for paying the additional medical expenses. By enrolling to participate in the GPS program, this gives you the needed peace of mind.
GPS provides benefits and services for both travel related accidents / illness as well as a host of benefits in the event of a medical complication that is a result from your scheduled elective procedure. It is the only package available that provides protection while you are in the host country as well as when you return home for a period of 6 months. Travel companion coverage can also be chosen.
Ease your mind in knowing that you can receive outstanding medical care at reasonable prices and enjoy the added benefit of knowing that if there is a complication you are protected.
