Take us with you and enjoy peace of mind while you are away.
Our Travel Plans provide 24/7 assistance 365 days a year. In the event of a medical emergency, our Travel Assistance Provider will direct you to the nearest medical facility equipped to provide the treatment you need. They will contact our office to confirm your benefits and keep us updated on your medical situation. If required, they will also arrange transfer to another medical facility or evacuation to Saskatchewan, and assist in contacting your family and/or business partner.
1. Saskatchewan Health doesn't cover all medical expenses
Unless you purchase travel insurance, you are personally responsible for medical expenses not covered by Saskatchewan Health when you travel outside the province. Medical care can be costly in other countries.
2. Existing health care coverage
Credit cards or group benefit plans may have certain limitations or exclusions that affect your coverage. Review your existing coverage as additional travel insurance may be required.
3. Travel advisories
Your travel insurance may not cover you if a travel advisory has been issued for your destination. Always check the Government of Canada Country travel advice and advisories webpage twice, once when you are planning your trip and again shortly before you leave.
4. Your health
Most travel plans exclude pre-existing conditions. Give us a call or stop by and chat if you have any concerns about your situation. If a medical questionnaire is required fill it out accurately and disclose all known medical conditions. Review your travel plan policy before you leave to make sure you understand what is covered.
5. Vacation activities
Some activities such as bungee jumping, hang gliding or mountain climbing may not be covered by your insurer. Review the exclusions and limitations section of your travel plan before you leave on your trip.
