UCT Emergency Travel Insurance Now Available for Canadian Members

COLUMBUS, October 2010 — If you’re a Canadian member, you’re likely aware that your provincial health insurance plan only covers a small portion of any medical charges incurred outside your home province. Now there’s no need to worry when traveling in the U.S. or other countries — we’ve got you covered.To ensure that you’re adequately protected when you travel away from home UCT and Expert Travel Financial Security Inc. (etfs) have worked together to develop a competitively priced and comprehensive emergency travel insurance product geared towards the needs of you and your family.

UCT Emergency Travel Insurance offers you the choice of two great plan options to cover you when traveling. You can choose the comprehensive nine-day multi-trip annual family medical plan that’s perfect for shorter holidays. Or you can go with a 30-day all-inclusive multi-trip annual family plan. This plan not only offers medical coverage but also provides coverage for trip cancellation, trip interruption, and lost or damaged baggage and personal effects. Both plans cover families for an unlimited number of trips worldwide.

To provide you with the greatest purchasing experience, the new emergency travel insurance plans don’t require a medical questionnaire — no matter what your age – and are available for sale directly over the phone through etfs’s customer contact centre. You can benefit from comprehensive emergency travel insurance coverage while maintaining the privacy of your medical history.

With the new UCT Emergency Travel Insurance, you’ll not only enjoy top quality emergency medical and non-medical travel insurance, but you’ll also have peace of mind knowing that emergency assistance is available 24/7.
