Frequently asked questions

There are some limitations to your coverage in the event of war. Please give our travel specialists a call at 1-800-394-1965.

Yes we do! We have single-trip emergency medical plans, Trip Cancellation or Interruption coverage, Baggage coverage, and Accidental Death and Dismemberment for seniors. Whether escaping the snow to go to Arizona or adventure-seeking in Europe, seniors can get coverage with Alberta Blue Cross®.

If you purchased travel insurance through a broker or travel agency, it's best to call them to confirm. If you purchased a plan directly from us, give our travel specialist a call at 1-800-394-1965.

Our single-trip and multi-trip annual plans can be extended. For a single-trip, you’ll need to call us before the return date of your original travel agreement. For multi-trip annual plans, you need to call us before the trip exceeds the maximum stay of your annual plan.

Of course you can! We will also give you a discount for this extension—just for being a valued Alberta Blue Cross® member. Unfortunately, you can’t purchase your additional days of travel online, but please give us a call at 1-800-394-1965 and we can set you up. Make sure you call prior to the end of the existing trip limit on your employer or individual health plan.

We recommend purchasing travel insurance when travelling within Canada. Medically necessary health care services—hospital care and physician services—are typically covered in other provinces, but additional services like ambulance, hospital transfers, air ambulance and repatriation to your province are not covered. The additional coverage provided by our medical travel insurance goes beyond what is covered by the provincial government and helps to keep medical costs in check in case of an emergency.

No, your vaccination status does not affect whether you are eligible for insurance or your premium costs.
