Don't assume your provincial or employee health plan will cover all your emergency health costs.

With COVID-19 putting the brakes on globetrotting outside Canada, increases in vaccination rates and decreases in provincial travel restrictions have created opportunities for domestic sightseeing.

Did you know that many Canadians who travel inside Canada — but outside their home provinces — assume that their provincial government or employee health plans will cover everything? Prescription drugs, air ambulance service, X-rays, and other costly procedures may not be covered by your plan, even if you’re still in Canada. 

The easiest way to prevent this potentially costly dilemma is to acquire travel insurance through Casera and CUMIS Travel Insurance. For details, drop by your neighbourhood branch, call CUMIS at 1-877-885-2847, or check out
