  • Green Shield Extends Coverage for Fully Vaccinated Traveller who Test Positive for COVID-19 until June 2022

    October 21st, 2021

    From January 1, 2022, to June 30, 2022, emergency medical expenses related to COVID-19 will be included in standard GSC travel plans for Fully Vaccinated Travellers only.

    Note: for the purposes of the COVID-19 emergency medical expenses and quarantine benefit, a Fully Vaccinated Traveller is someone who is eligible for and has completed the recommended vaccine treatment considered by the Canadian government (typically two doses) at least two weeks prior to departure. Travellers who are not able to receive a vaccine in Canada based on age or medical condition will be considered a Fully Vaccinated Traveller for the purpose of this coverage.

    If your out-of-country travel coverage is under a pure ASO funding arrangement or you have an out-of-country pooling limit, we are also extending these most recent COVID-19 coverage enhancements to your plan – the same approach that we have taken with other travel enhancements during the pandemic. Please contact your GSC account team for more information.

    Reminder on quarantine benefits

    As you may have seen, effective August 1, 2021, standard GSC travel plans which include COVID-19 medical coverage are also covering some quarantine benefits for Fully Vaccinated Travellers who are unable to return home as planned due to a positive COVID-19 test pre-departure, resulting in the requirement to quarantine outside of their province of residence. This coverage extension will also be in effect until June 30, 2022 and will continue to apply to Fully Vaccinated Travellers only
