A plans that fits your needs

Travelling within Canada?

Health coverage differs from province to province. As a non-resident traveller to another province or territory, you may not be eligible for the same services or pay the same rates as residents.

If you’re travelling within the country, make sure you’re covered no matter where you go with a Canada-only plan.

Travelling outside Canada?

We’ve all heard how high out-of-country medical bills can run. Travel insurance when leaving the country is a must; you can’t predict when accidents might occur.

Travel often?

Annual plans cover you for any number of trips within a one-year period. Choosing annual coverage up-front might provide you more value than purchasing coverage for each trip individually.

Can an existing condition or chronic
illness be covered?

If your illness or condition is under control, it may be covered under a Blue Cross travel insurance plan. But, it's important to consult your doctor at least four months before your departure to ensure that your illness or condition is well under control. If you are over the age of 55, visit your doctor at least seven months before you plan to leave. If your condition or illness is excluded for coverage, you will only be covered in case of accident or illness not related to that condition.

*For individuals ages 55 to 75 who will be travelling for 32 days or more, and/or individuals ages 76 and up, please call one of our agents for more information about the Emergency Medical Care benefit.
