COVID-19: update on travel insurance coverage

As of Oct.1, 2020, SSQ Insurance will be covering all eligible emergency medical expenses resulting from COVID-19 for insureds travelling outside of Canada. 

 During this pandemic, our priority remains the health and safety of our insureds. Our decisions are based on their best interests. Although the best option is to avoid travelling altogether, SSQ Insurance wants to protect those who must.

Remember that in all countries affected by the coronavirus, any directives issued by the local government and public safety authorities will supersede those of our assistance service. As a result, access to health care may be limited.
