Travel Insurance Claims
Travel Insurance Tips
Be aware of the maximum benefit under your policy and the currency. Many travel insurance companies offer limited coverage in Canadian dollars, whereas most travel claims are settled in U.S. dollars. The Canadian Snowbird Association recommends a minimum coverage of $1 million USD.
Medipac's maximum benefit is $2 million USD - double the CSA suggested amount! With MedipacPLUS the maximum benefit is $5 million USD!

Medipac Assist will require completed Claim forms, an Authorization and Release form, original (keep copies for yourself) invoices and/or receipts and the payment of your deductible, if any is required. If you are claiming under your Annual Add-on Plan, proof of your departure date is needed. Proof can be in the form of a stamped passport or a duty free receipt from a border crossing.
To begin processing your claim file, original bills are required. This includes original prescription receipts, original itemized bills, HCFA-Form 1500 (Doctors Bill), UB 92 (Hospital bill) (with itemized statement) OR an original itemized doctor's bill with:

Quebec and British Columbia Residents must submit their Claim forms within 21 days of receipt of the claims kit to avoid delays in processing the claim.
