**IMPORTANT UPDATE! PLEASE NOTE! May 2018: As of May 1, 2018, our coverage is now with iA Special Risks (not VIATOR/RSA/Global Excel).
If you are a Unit 2 member and are planning on using the Unit 2 travel coverage in the near future, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org in advance of your trip for more information.
All Unit 2 members have access to an out-of-province Emergency Medical Coverage Group Travel Insurance plan with iA Financial Group through the Union. You are eligible to claim if you have worked as a Sessional in the current academic year.
This coverage provides Sessional Faculty and Hourly Rated Sessional Music Faculty with emergency out-of-province health coverage (i.e., emergency hospital/medical insurance for injury sustained or sickness contracted while traveling outside of your province of residence) for scheduled trips of 45 days (or less) in duration.
For restrictions, definitions and coverage details, please contact the office well before you leave for your trip. If you are going to be traveling outside of the province you need to pick up a card and coverage book before leaving. *APRIL 2018: Coverage cards and booklets for our new plan will be available soon. In the interim, please contact email@example.com for more information.
There is a set of phone numbers on the back of the wallet card. If you need to access medical services out of the province or country, you are required to call the appropriate number on the back of the card (if you are physically able). The insurance company may direct you to a specific doctor or service provider.
If you have any questions about the Group Travel Insurance please contact the Union office.
Family Members: *NEW MARCH 2017* You can now enroll in family coverage by contacting our broker at McLean Hallmark. To obtain his contact information, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
