Medical evacuation air ambulance services must be medically necessary. The cost of air evacuation between hospitals, for hospital admission into your Canadian province or territory of residence, or when ordered by the attending physician or the travel assistance service provider and approved by your government health plan provider or by us will be covered. If the air ambulance benefit is used, the unused portion of your air ticket must be surrendered to us.
When your medical emergency is such that the attending physician or the travel assistance service provider specifies in writing that you should immediately return to your Canadian province or territory of residence for immediate medical treatment, we will reimburse the extra cost incurred for the purchase of one-way economy airfare on a commercial flight.
