Travel Insurance update on Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Please note as of October 2,2020 anyone that currently has the MEDOC Travel will be covered for Covid-19 medical claims outside of Canada. As of January 1, 2021 the MEDOC plan will no longer cover Trip Cancellation/Interruption claims due to Covid-19.
As of October 2, 2020, coverage for travel to areas outside Canada is now available, including where travel advisories due to COVID-19 may still be in place.
Although coverage for eligible medical expenses is now available, we strongly encourage customers to review the Government of Canada travel advisories before booking and travelling. Return transportation options and availability of medical care may become very limited outside Canada.
Trip Cancellation and Interruption coverage remains in place, and is currently available for COVID-19 related cancellations if your trip was booked prior to the travel advisories being issued. However, as of January 1, 2021, Trip Cancellation and Interruption coverage related to COVID-19 will not be available for any travel bookings made since the March 2020 travel advisories. Customers who have not made a trip cancellation claim for bookings made prior to the pandemic should refer to their policy to understand timelines to submit a claim, as travel advisory changes by the Government of Canada may impact claim eligibility.
