When you or your employees travel on international business, you want to be sure to have access to quality health care when needed (as little as one employee). We understand the challenges you face when it comes to managing benefits for employees working outside of Canada in these difficult times. Out of country coverage with your group insurance or your individual health insurance will not cover COVID outside of Canada.
What if you could purchase Emergency Medical Insurance for you or your Canadian employees travelling in the USA or Internationally including COVID?
An emergency coverage for business travelers on short-term assignment plan provides coverage for emergency and urgent care to employees and their dependents while traveling outside their home country. It’s is portable so employees traveling from one country to another during their trip can maintain the same benefit level in every country and territory.
Who is eligible?
Employees traveling solely at the request or expense of the Participating Employer; who are Canadian residents traveling outside of Canada and Non-Canadian residents traveling outside their country of primary residence on business for no more than 180 consecutive days for one business trip.
Providing emergency medical coverage can help make traveling abroad more appealing and productive for employees. So, while they’re away taking care of your interests, everyone can rest easy knowing they’re well-protected in the unlikely event of an emergency.
