Medicare International Travel Insurance is for Canadian residents with provincial healthcare travelling outside of their province of residence or outside of Canada. Provincial health insurance covers only a small portion of the cost of a medical emergency while you are travelling. For example, a 5-day hospital stay in Florida can result in charges of $50,000 or more. Your provincial plan would likely reimburse $5,000 or less, leaving you with a bill for more than $40,000!
21st Century’s Medicare International Travel Insurance plan is our comprehensive plan for Canadians travelling outside of their province of residence. You can choose between Emergency Medical, All-Inclusive, or Stand-alone Trip Cancellation. Please note that the product offered through Travel Agents is slightly different than the one described below which is sold by insurance brokers and advisors. Contact your Travel Agent for details.
