Travelling should be fun. You should be able to enjoy yourself and not worry about what to do if something goes wrong. That’s why Alberta Blue Cross travel coverage includes a 24-hour travel assistance service. Here’s a few ways they can help you if you encounter an unexpected medical emergency while you are travelling.
If you’re travelling outside Alberta and experience a medical emergency, our travel assistance service provider will be there for you. They can help direct you to an appropriate clinic or hospital and where appropriate provide pre-approval for your treatment. In fact, you should attempt to contact them prior to receiving any substantial medical attention, or have someone do so on your behalf, to confirm in advance that you’ll be covered for those services.
Based on your benefits, travel assistance can also provide a long list of support services for both medical and other emergencies.
While our travel assistance service provider is great for emergencies, it’s not intended for general or non-urgent inquiries about your coverage. If you need to change your dates of travel or have questions about your coverage, contact us prior to leaving. If you’ve already left and want to stay longer than initially planned, contact us to extend your trip coverage. Call us at 1-800-661-6995. Our office hours are 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. MT, Monday to Friday.
All of our Alberta Blue Cross travel ID cards provide contact information for our travel assistance service provider; whenever you’re travelling, be sure to keep this card handy.
