Government Restrictions on Travel Quicklinks:
What to ask your Travel Insurance Provider:
- What does my plan cover, and what are the benefit maximums?
- Does the plan cover me if I contract COVID-19 while travelling?
- What are the exclusions and limitations of the COVID-19 Rider?
- Does the plan provide coverage for an automatic extension if hospitalized beyond the return date?
COVID-19 while Travelling in Canada
The Saskatchewan Health plan does include coverage for COVID-19 and other medical emergencies. However, you may still want to consider purchasing Emergency Medical for other additional costs not covered by the provincial plan. Coverage can include an ambulance ride, return of the vehicle and more.
COVID-19 is a Pre-Existing Condition
The good news is that COVID-19 is covered as a medical condition. But, just like any other medical condition, it is subject to stability period requirements. Pre-existing conditions, including COVID-19, typically have a stability requirement of 90-180 days (depending on your age and the insurance carrier) before your departure.
