As the cold weather settles in, many of us begin to plan warm getaways to get through the harsh winter months. With the excitement and anticipation of a winter holiday, it is easy to overlook the importance of travel insurance to protect yourself and the ones you love while on vacation.
When traveling outside of Saskatchewan, you are responsible for potential medical expenses not covered by Saskatchewan Health. Whether you are heading south to soak up some sun or hitting the slopes in Western Canada, Saskatchewan Blue Cross Travel Plans will ensure you are protected wherever you choose to travel.
The Daily Travel Plan from Saskatchewan Blue Cross provides up to $5 million per covered person for emergency medical expenses up to 214 days/year, for as little as $2 per day. Should you find yourself requiring hospital services, the aid of a health care professional, prescription drugs, or emergency dental care while traveling, the Daily Travel Plan has you protected. Accidental Death & Dismemberment coverage is available as an optional benefit, offering up to $50,000 per person. As long as you are a Saskatchewan Resident holding a validated health card and meet eligibility, you can purchase a Daily Travel Plan for your next trip.
If you are a Saskatchewan Blue Cross Personal Health Plan member, you can add the VIP Travel optional benefit to your plan. This VIP Annual Travel benefit is ideal for the frequent traveler, covering trips up to 30 consecutive days per trip with no limit to the number of trips.
This plan offers up to $5 million in emergency medical benefits and can be added to your Personal Health Plan without completing a medical questionnaire.
In the event of a medical emergency, Saskatchewan Blue Cross’ Travel Assistance Providers is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to ensure you are taken care of where ever you chose to travel.
Before you leave on vacation, protect you & your family from the unexpected with Saskatchewan Blue Cross Travel Insurance.
