COPACare Travel FAQ’s

Travel insurance is a must while traveling outside of your province of residence if you are a member of COPA we have a plan for you.
We are always here to answer you questions.
If you are traveling outside your province of residence, to the United States or overseas, even the smallest injury or illness can be devastating. That is why Puhl Employee Benefits in co-operation with COPACare Travel have teamed up to answer some frequently asked questions.

Top Question from COPA Members

Are pilots and family members covered also while flying?
  • Yes. You will need to list your spouse and any dependents on your application form including info for dependents between 21 and 25 that are in full time school.
What about 3rd party passengers in my plane?
  • They are covered if listed as dependents. Otherwise they will need to purchase a separate travel medical policy.
What travel coverage is provided?
  • Covers all trips up to 45 days per trip maximum while travelling outside of your province of residence for emergency injury or sickness.
  • Pilot’s coverage is for non-commercial use. There is no aircraft exclusions under this policy.
  • Maximum $1,000,000 per injury or sickness per person.
Travel coverage is for how long?
  • The max trip is 45 consecutive days from the province of residence so the participant must return to the province of residence.
  • After twenty-four(24) hours the participant can again depart their province for a new 45 days of travel coverage.
  • Travel coverage is limited to 45 days and cannot be extended if travelling. A separate policy is required before you begin your trip to extend coverage longer than 45 days.
What specialized Air coverage is included?
  • Insured under policy #1C680 would be covered for flying power para-gliders, but not for an acrobatic performance, aerobatics, or stunt flying. Coverage is not provided for air balloons and gliders under any circumstance.
    So in other words, if it’s for leisure, it would be covered under policy #1C680. If it’s for a “show”, it usually will be for stunt flying or a race (speed contest) and would be excluded under this policy.
Traveling for long amounts of time** – what are my options?
  • COPA has a Travel Top Up option that can be purchased on an individual basis. The top up plan has a health questionnaire and the cost is based on your answers as well as your age and length of trip.
  • If you know you will be away for more than 45 days, you should buy coverage before you leave your province as it is more difficult to add it once you have left.
