Employee Travel Coverage


For the most up-to date information about your travel coverage, please:

Travel healthcare benefits are provided to active members of the HEB Manitoba Healthcare Plan and their eligible family members.

When you travel on vacation or business, the Plan provides coverage for emergency treatment due to an accident or sickness, and includes benefits for hospital, medical, and related expenses following an unexpected, sudden or unforeseen accident or sickness outside your province of residence. Travel coverage includes a maximum of $5,000,000 per person per claim, to a lifetime maximum of $5,000,000.

It is important that you understand your travel healthcare benefits before you travel as your coverage may be subject to certain restrictions.

Your policy may not provide coverage for medical conditions and/or symptoms that existed before your trip. In the event of an accident, injury or sickness, your prior medical history may be reviewed when a claim is made. 

You are required to notify the designated travel assistance company prior to treatment. Your policy may limit benefits if you do not contact the travel assistance company within a specified time period.

Please consult the Travel Healthcare Benefits Summary for an overview of travel healthcare benefits, exclusions, and limitations.
