Medical Travel Reimbursement Benefit
This is an optional benefit and is especially useful to clients in areas that don't have well-developed health resources. The Medical Travel Reimbursement Benefit provides for reimbursement of medical transportation and accommodation for employees and eligible dependents from remote areas to receive medical treatment ordered by an attending physician that is not available locally. Note that a pre-approval is recommended by the carrier for any potential expenses.

Medical Travel Benefit
When ordered by the attending Physician or Dentist because, in his or her opinion, adequate medical treatment is not available locally (within 250 km of the Member’s residence), the carrier will reimburse travel and accommodation expenses for a patient (and attendant if medically required) to travel to the nearest locale in the Member’s province of residence (or a bordering province) that is equipped to provide the treatment.
This benefit will reimburse up to $2,000 per person per calendar year.
