Provincial Health Care – Easy reference for temporary absences

12 Mar Provincial Health Care – Easy reference for temporary absences

Did you know that you can only be away for a certain length of time in order to maintain your provincial health care coverage?

If you or your family members are going to be travelling or away for more than 6 consecutive months, it is important to notify Alberta Health.  Please visit http://www.health.alberta.ca/AHCIP/absence-from-Alberta.html for more information.

Important tip: Since individual and group travel insurance policies assume that Provincial coverage is in place, you should ensure your continued eligibility with Alberta Health Care coverage if you plan on being away from Alberta for an extended period of time.
