Significant improvements coming to the MEDOC travel insurance plan offered by Johnson Insurance. These improvements will be effective September 1, 2018.

Trips inside BC now qualify for trip cancellation

Recognizing that booking a cottage and transport across the province can be as big an expenditure as traveling to another province, and MEDOC coverage now applies to in-province trips as well.

Document replacement coverage

MEDOC Claims Assistance Centre will help you replace lost or stolen documents, with coverage increasing from $200 to $500 for 2018/2019. You are covered for the loss or theft of your passport, driver’s license, birth certificate and/or travel visa.

Non-medical emergency evacuation

Emergency mountain, sea or other remote location evacuation of you to the nearest accessible point by professional services up to $5,000.

New accidental death coverages

There is improved life coverage for air travelers and other hazards.

Premium increases held to 1.9%

In an era where many insurance plans see vastly increased premiums, the MEDOC plan has limited this year’s premium change to just 1.9%.
