Whether you are travelling for a week or a season, Out of Country Health Insurance can be the difference between a quick return to health or bankruptcy when something happens to you when you are away. A great Out of Country policy provides the peace of mind needed to fully enjoy your time away from home.
Out-of-province emergency medical expenses are not generally covered by your provincial medical plan and these expenses can be financially overwhelming. While travelling outside your own province, some medical and paramedical expenses may only be partially covered by your provincial health insurance program.
The Snowbird Club is working with several Canadian Insurance Companies to develop the first of its kind Travel Insurance specifically for older travellers with existing health conditions. Our program will include active monitoring of your condition with dashboards to track your health and benchmarks to indicate changes in condition that requires a visit to the Doctor. As we grow these visits may be of the virtual variety!
The Insurance we are developing will work hand in hand with our Snowbird Health programs to reduce emergency room visits while away and help you improve your health both away and at home!
