Extended Health

Please note improvement to Travel Health coverage!

Current – Trip maximum details:

  • There is a 90-day maximum on any trip that includes travel outside of Canada.
  • Any trip in excess of 90 days, that includes travel outside of Canada, is not eligible for coverage.
  • This coverage cannot be extended beyond the 90-day trip limitation. Any extension purchased to extend coverage beyond 90 days will invalidate all coverage for that trip.
  • All trips must originate and terminate in your province of residence.

Effective September 1, 2020 Travel Health coverage has been improved:

 Trip maximum details:

  • Coverage is limited to the first 90 days of any trip outside of Canada.
  • Coverage for trips inside Canada is unlimited.

Therefore, for travel beginning September 1, 2020 and later, any Travel Health claims incurred in the first 90 days of a trip will be eligible for claim consideration by Blue Cross. This applies if the scheduled duration of the trip is more than 90 days, regardless if additional insurance beyond 90 days is purchased.

Any claims in the first 90 days of a trip outside Canada would be adjudicated by Blue Cross. If a plan member requires coverage beyond 90 days it is their responsibility to purchase additional coverage.

The Extended Health Benefits Plan covers a broad range of Health related services to protect you and your dependents.

For details of your coverage, please see the plan description applicable to your group.
