Whether it’s a quick trip across the border or a family vacation, unexpected illness, injury and personal emergencies are not planned—they just happen! Getting proper medical attention can be difficult when you are not familiar with your surroundings. Not being able to speak the local language can often compound this problem. The Empire Life Travel Emergency Assistance Program is here to help.
Helpful tips when you are getting ready to travel:
- Review the Travel Emergency Assistance coverage described in your benefits booklet on the Plan Member Website.
- Refer to the Government of Canada Travel Advisory website at www.travel.gc.ca for travel advisories.
- Carry your Benefit Card and your provincial health card with you. If you need a copy of your Benefit Card, go to the Plan Member website to print one.
Colour us excited! We have a new service provider for the Travel Emergency Assistance Program as of May 1, 2022.
