Travel Health Insurance

Travel Health Insurance Picture

Different insurance companies offer various coverage packages with different limits, or different options to receive care in different countries. Depending on your personal circumstances or travel plans, the options may or may not be of benefit to you. Factors to consider include, but are not limited too, the coverage, limitations, health versus travel or cancellation costs, and how to claim in the event of an emergency. This can be particularly important for travel to some countries. Many of our members purchase extra Health Insurance when traveling to countries with expensive health care costs such as the United States.  The following links contain information on SSQ’s Travel Health Insurance.

Newfoundland MCP strongly recommends that additional travel/health insurance be purchased from a private insurer before you leave the province for any period of time - even if for only one day. For detailes please check out Out of Province Coverage on the Newfoundland Governments Health and Community Services web site.
