Is RAMQ Cover Travel Insurance?

Uncertainties and medical emergencies can occur at any time, even when you travel. You need a comprehensive Quebec travel insurance policy to cover medical costs not covered by RAMQ when you travel. To get your private medical coverage or travel insurance policy, you might have to spend a lot of time comparing policy options in order to choose the coverage that suits your purpose. Why not call Insurdinary to get connected to insurance advisors who will give you expert insurance advice and guide you to get the best travel insurance coverage available to Quebecers.

If you hold a valid RAMQ health insurance card, you can sure receive healthcare service covered by the provincial plan when you travel out of Quebec or out of Canada. However, RAMQ covers part of the costs in most cases. The provincial coverage does not cover emergency transportation, cost of a private and semi-private hospital room, drugs purchased outside the province and so forth. Besides, it pays an amount equivalent to the service obtained in Quebec; you have to cater for the extra cost or difference. This is why you need an additional Quebec travel insurance policy for comprehensive coverage.
