However long your trip, don’t spend a lifetime paying for it.
Your travel essentials should include peace of mind.
As a physician, you know the value of having the right protection when travelling – from anti-viral shots to stomach medication to sunscreen. But it's just as critical to protect your finances, especially considering the staggering costs of a medical emergency outside your home country or province – expenses that can have a long lasting affect on your finances.
That's why OMA travel insurance makes a world of sense for you and your loved ones. If you do not have OMA Health Benefits or need to supplement your existing travel coverage, you can choose from a range of options available through our new travel insurance partner, Manulife.
Do you have OMA Health Benefits or OPIP?
If you have OMA Health Benefits (including OPIP) you are covered for $2-million emergency out-of-country medical coverage for the first 90 days of travel if you are under age 70 and for the first 30 days of travel, if you are age 70 or over.
Multi-Trip Travel Protection
Trip Cancellation & Interruption
What if you unexpectedly need to cancel your trip, return home earlier or stay longer than planned, due to an unforeseen event? This plan can help you protect the investment you made in your trip. It can be added to travel medical coverage or purchased on its own.
Multi-Trip Emergency Medical
Are you planning on making multiple trips within a year? If so, this plan can be the most cost-effective, covering all your trips that year for one price. Choose a plan that covers 4, 10, 18, 30 or 60 days per trip, with up to $10 million in emergency medical coverage. You can purchase “Top Up” coverage for any additional days you want to cover.
If you plan on making more than one trip within a year, and want more than just emergency medical coverage, this plan can be much more affordable than purchasing multiple single-trip plans. It includes up to $10 million in emergency medical coverage, plus coverage for trip cancellation and interruption, baggage loss and more. Choose a plan that covers 4, 10, 18, 30 or 60 days per trip.
Emergency Medical Top-Up
Do you already have travel emergency medical coverage, or a multi-trip plan that doesn’t cover the duration of your trip? You can use this plan to top up your coverage for the number of days you need.
Visitors to Canada Emergency Medical Plan
If you have friends or family visiting from overseas, they won’t be covered by our government health insurance plans, which could result in expensive out-of-pocket payments for any health care needs they require. This plan can cover many of those costs, with emergency medical coverage amounts of $15,000, $25,000, $50,000, $100,000 or $150,000 available.
Travel Protection for Students
Students Studying in Canada Outside their Home Province
If you’re studying in Canada, but outside your home province or territory, you won’t have the full protection of your government health insurance plan. If you fall sick or get injured, you may be faced with expensive medical costs. While you're away, this plan can cover many costs for both emergency and non-emergency medical expenses – up to $2 million.
International Students Studying in Canada
If you're coming from outside Canada to study here, it's important to protect yourself with medical insurance. While many medical costs are covered for Canadians, unfortunately that protection is not extended to international students. While you're in Canada, this plan can cover many costs for both emergency and non-emergency medical expenses – up to $2 million.
Canadian Students Studying Outside Canada
Are you preparing to study abroad? If you fall sick or get injured outside Canada, your government health insurance plan provides limited coverage, putting you on the hook for expensive medical costs. While you're away, this plan can cover many costs for both emergency and non-emergency medical expenses – up to $2 million.
