Coming soon: Optional medical travel coverage from GSC


When the time comes to travel again, Green Shield Canada (GSC) is standing by to help you do so with confidence. GSC is pleased to announce optional medical travel coverage will soon be available for retired members of the Public Service Pension Plan. Where travel restrictions remain in place, coverage will align with government travel advisories.

This coverage will be available at competitive rates to retired members enrolled in GSC’s extended health care or dental coverage, supplementing these benefits for a more comprehensive package. To learn more about coverage options for retired plan members, please read Retirement health coverage and you.

GSC’s optional medical travel coverage will focus on protection for unexpected injuries or illnesses that require immediate medical attention while travelling. This will add to the health choices available to retired members. You may obtain travel coverage extending to trip cancellation and baggage delay through other channels when broader coverage is desired. GSC encourages you to research your options to determine what is best for your situation.

Stay tuned for more details from GSC in the weeks ahead, including rates and how to sign up.
