Insurance Update CSANews Spring 2022

Posted on May 11th, 2022 by Medipac

There is not much new to report on the insurance front. The sales this year were greater than any other
in Medipac`s 39 years of underwriting travel medical insurance business. Part of that can be attributed
to Medipac being the first, and still one of the few, companies which properly covers Covid and its many
strains. The other driver is the powerful word of mouth recommendations from our many clients who
have experienced our excellent and caring claims service. Thank you for your wonderful support during
these trying times.

Medipac still provides a 5% discount for those who have had at least one dose of a Covid vaccination,
and continues to provide coverage even when there is a Covid travel advisory issued by the Canadian
Government. It is interesting to note that the states in the U.S. which remained fairly lenient with their
lockdowns and restrictions seem to have resulted in fewer Covid deaths and better medical outcomes.
This has certainly been reflected in our claim statistics as well.

We are already making plans for our Early Bird launch and I hope to have good news on the premium
front. We still must navigate the last few weeks of the snowbird market, however, and we hope to find
no “surprises.”

It has been a wonderful year in snowbird country. Few restrictions, lots of sand and sun, and meeting
old and new friends has been a blessing. Have a wonderful spring and summer and a safe trip home… if
you are still lingering in the South.
