Isabelle, age 42: Traveller's diarrhea
Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
Hospitalization and return air flight
|Isabelle consulted a hotel doctor for a rash and diarrhea while on a week-long trip to Punta Cana. She had expected to be treated with medication, but was rushed to the emergency room at the nearest hospital. Her symptoms were due to overexposure to the sun, and the diarrhea had caused dehydration. Her husband was taken to the hospital the next day with the same condition. They were hospitalized for four days and were unable to depart on their scheduled flight. Thanks to the Trip Cancellation and Interruption coverage in their Travel Insurance policy, they traveled home on a commercial flight two days later.|
Refers to a child of the contract holder, the contract holder’s spouse, or both, over 30 days old before departure, who is dependent on the contract holder, who is not married and who is under 21 years of age or under 25 years of age and attending an educational institution full time as a duly registered student or who is physically or mentally handicapped.
A child who is not a Canadian resident, who is at least 31 days old and is in the process of being adopted by a Canadian resident is considered a dependent child upon completion of all required documents and once the appropriate authorities in the adoptee’s country of origin definitively and irrevocably release the child into the physical, visual and exclusive care of the adoptive parents or the person who will accompany the child until arrival in Canada. A child who is in the process of being adopted does not have to be covered by a government health and hospitalization program of a Canadian province or territory.
In a single-parent or family plan, any child of the contract holder or the contract holder’s spouse who is born after the effective date of the contract is automatically insured as soon as the child meets the criteria of the definition of a dependent child, subject to the payment of a supplementary premium, as the case may be.
Important: Each insured person shall consult their insurance contract for definitions that are specific to it.
