Before you leave
If you purchased a single or multi-trip plan, or if you have a personal plan, please refer to your agreement to verify your travel coverage. If you have benefits through your employer, please refer to your benefit booklet if available.
To confirm if you have travel coverage, sign into our member site, select the Benefits tab and click Out of Country to see what coverage you currently have. Note: emergency medical coverage does not include trip cancellation, trip interruption and baggage coverage, but you can purchase this coverage separately online.
You do not need to notify Alberta Blue Cross® of your travel dates; however, it is your responsibility to ensure you travel within the eligible trip dates of your policy.
It is extremely important that you take the time to read your agreement, so you can learn exactly what you’re covered for and how to file a claim. It also gives you the opportunity to chat with us before you leave to clarify any questions you might have.
If a situation occurs that could affect your safety and well-being while travelling, the Government of Canada will issue a travel advisory or warning. Before you leave on your trip, it is important to check for these warnings and advisories because they could affect your coverage. Keep up to date on any current advisories.
