#3 Travel Insurance

    Why buy Travel Insurance?
Out of Canada emergency medical expenses are not generally covered by your provincial medical plan and these expenses can be financially overwhelming. For millions of Canadians, comprehensive emergency travel coverage offered by Blue Cross® Member Plans has become an essential part of their holiday plans. When the unexpected happens, rely on expert assistance. Blue Cross is able to provide help should you run into trouble while traveling. Day or night, regardless of where you are in the world, you can call CanAssistance toll-free and be taken care of immediately, regardless of the nature of the emergency. Visit our Travel Insurance page for more details.

 
    Is Travel Insurance really necessary? Doesn't the RAMQ cover medical costs?
Medical insurance is essential the moment you leave Québec. The Canada Health Act requires the Régime de l’assurance maladie du Québec to cover your medical costs in Québec, however not outside of the province. In fact the RAMQ only covers a small portion of medical or hospital costs incurred outside of Québec, such as $50 for a medical consultation and $100 a day for hospitalization. Because medical costs are higher elsewhere – particularly in the United States – without travel insurance, your financial security is at risk.

 
    Do I need to complete a medical questionnaire?
A distinction should be made between a statement of health and a medical questionnaire. A medical questionnaire is an option Blue Cross offers to cover pre-existing conditions for individuals over 60 years of age. You are not obliged to complete this questionnaire, but doing so gives you a definite advantage. In 80% of cases, the questionnaires result in coverage that may otherwise not be granted. Simply have your doctor complete the questionnaire and send it to us. Your health status will then be assessed by the Blue Cross medical director; if your pre-existing condition is stable and does not present an increased risk, it will be covered and you will be able to leave on your trip with true peace of mind.


    Can I speak to an agent directly?
Yes! Our agents will be able to assist you with the top-up of group insurance coverage, the completion of a medical questionnaire to apply for coverage of a chronic illness, and can also answer any additional questions you may have. Toll-Free: 1-877-485-6004 or by email
