Travelling to Cuba?
Green Shield Canada is pleased to inform that our emergency out-of-country coverage is administered by Mondial Assistance, a provider which is recognized by the Republic of Cuba’s government. If a plan member has active emergency out-of-country coverage through Green Shield Canada, they will not have to purchase any additional coverage. However, they will need to provide documentation to prove their coverage.
When travelling to Cuba, plan member with emergency out-of-country travel benefits should carry with them:
1. Provincial Health Card
2. Proof of Insurance – Green Shield Canada ID Card is all that is needed
3. Proof of a contractual relationship with a recognized provider
These documents are sufficient to allow Green Shield Canada plan members into Cuba without the need of additional insurance.
