COVID-19: SSQ Insurance travel coverage update
Although the best protection is to limit travel, SSQ Insurance will continue to support members who must travel despite the current advisories.
Please find the following update regarding the various insurance coverages for our policyholders who are currently travelling:
- Costs for mandatory COVID-19 screening tests, performed at the request of a government authority before returning to Canada, are not covered by travel insurance.
- Additional costs incurred while waiting for COVID-19 test results, performed at the request of a government authority, are not covered (for example, costs for a new place ticket, change fees for an existing ticket, accommodation or living expenses, etc.)
- If the result of a mandatory COVID-19 screening test is positive, additioinal costs incurred may be eligible for reimbursement.
