Travel Insurance

Emergency Medical Coverage

Travel insurance is included with your UTGSU insurance plan. The Travel Benefits portion of your insurance plan offered by the UTGSU coverage is for 120 days of each trip. Students who are leaving on a recognized academic exchange are also covered for the duration of their exchange and for another 120 days before and after their approved exchange. They must remain members of the UTGSU, pay fees to University of Toronto including the Health Plan fee and keep their provincial health-care coverage.

Travel Insurance covers hospital, physician, and other services for emergency treatment of an injury or illness while travelling outside of the province in which you reside (including international travel). It covers reasonable and customary charges, which are in excess of the provincial health-care allowance. Please note, travel health coverage does not apply to international students, including US students, travelling to their home country. Repatriation is covered up to $7,500 CAD. The maximum coverage is $5,000,000 CAD per incident.
