While traveling out of Canada
Daily Travel Plans provide
up to $5,000,000 per Covered Person for emergency
medical expenses incurred while travelling anywhere in the world outside Saskatchewan.
Coverage is available for trips up to 214 days. In addition, depending
upon coverage chosen, this plan can include $50,000 per Covered
Person for Accidental Death and Dismemberment while travelling.
Our travel plans include the services
of a Travel Assistance Provider. Assistance is available 24 hours
a day, 365 days a year. The 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 or business partner.
Extensions to your existing
Saskatchewan Blue Cross travel coverage are available only by contacting
us at 306.244.1192 or 1.800.USEBLUE®.
Dependent children 18 and over
are required to purchase their own policy. Dependent children
under the age of 18 who are travelling alone are required to apply with
a parent or guardian, even if that parent or guardian is not accompanying
them. However, eligibility and terms and conditions still apply
to all people listed on the policy.
Please note that all applicants must have a valid Saskatchewan Health
Services Card to be eligible for coverage. Coverage must be purchased
prior to departure for the entire duration of the trip, including the
day of departure and the day of return.
