Why do I need Travel Medical Insurance?
If you decide to forego purchasing travel medical insurance, the expense of your 2 week getaway can skyrocket for something as simple as food poisoning, appendicitis or even a cavity. Or a relaxing cross border trip to the US could easily turn into a stress filled nightmare since most US hospitals won’t provide treatment with out proof of medical coverage or cash in advance.
Did you know?
Your provincial health plan does not provide full coverage when you travel out of province or out of country. You only receive approximately 7% of your total sickness or injury cost when you’re outside of Canada. With Westland's travel medical insurance policy, you can rest assured that you’re protected.
Westland’s travel medical insurance gives you access to the top medical care (in the event of an emergency) available without you having to worry about how much it will cost. By sticking to some of our basic travel tips, you won’t have to pay for crippling financial costs like other travelers who suffered a medical emergency while out of the country.
