Long-Term (182+ days) Emergency Medical Travel Insurance

Long-Term (182+ days) Emergency Medical Travel Insurance

When planning on spending an extended time working, studying or living abroad, there are many issues for you to consider. Deciding on out-of-country health insurance is a critical one.

Be confident knowing you’re protected for the entire length of your stay

Taking advantage of the health and travel insurance benefits offered by Special Benefits will lessen some of the stresses associated with living in a foreign country where you are not covered by government health plans, while ensuring you have access to medical services worldwide, should a medical emergency occur.

Best of all, unlike short-term travel insurance (less than 182 days), which requires you to return to Canada once you are able following an emergency, this plan continues coverage with follow-up visits (e.g. physiotherapy) and does not require you to return to your home province for ongoing treatment.

Working with leading carriers of travel insurance, like RSA Insurance and Destination: Travel Health Plans, Special Benefits can help you find long-term travel insurance that fits your needs and your budget.

Additional coverage options for your long-term travel insurance package can also allow you to be covered upon your return to Canada while you wait for your provincial health benefits to be reinstated. Choosing the right long-term insurance plan ensures that you will not be forced to return to Canada in the event of an illness or accident. You can continue working, studying, or living abroad for your treatment and follow-up visits.

NOTE: Applicants must be Canadians less than age 70. Coverage is NOT available for Switzerland, Germany and Abu Dhabi state, in the United Arab Emirates.
