Many of the insurance carriers have implemented changes to their underwriting travel for EHC, life, critical illness and disability insurance applications, based on the Government of Canada’s warning updates related to COVID-19.
As you are aware, this is an evolving situation and travel guidelines may change over the coming weeks depending on the degree of risk associated with various regions of the world as determined by the Canadian government travel warnings. Please let us know if you have questions regarding updates to your group benefits plan.
