Travel Insurance (Emergency Medical)
The GSA provides travel insurance automatically and at no additional cost to health plan members. Coverage is for a maximum of 60 days per trip, and for a maximum of $5,000,000 per student for emergency medical care. This coverage is for emergency medical only, not for flight cancellations, or for lost luggage. Students who have opted out of the health portion of the health and dental plan are not covered by travel insurance.
Travel coverage is now automatic since the 2014-15 plan year. You no longer need to inform us of your departure, or fill out a form.
For 24-hour emergency medical assistance while traveling, call 1-800-936-6226 toll-free in Canada and the USA. Call 0.519.742.3556 collect in other countries. You must call within 48 hours of the commencement of treatment. Your ID number is CAR (for Carleton) plus your student number. Our GSC Travel Assistance Group is 5492.
