A Medical Question for Bird Talk

Posted date : May 14, 2019

On page 9 of the summer 2017 CSANews, in the Bird Talk section, the editor talked about travel insurance and “the regular care and monitoring of a chronic condition.” Having “an incredible battery of tests at a bus in a pharmacy parking lot for $149” sounds great, until a situation requiring out-of-province medical attention arises […]

Snowbird Car Insurance

Posted date : Nov 7, 2017

After reading about the 180-day maximum vehicle insurance coverage period when in the U.S. in the last CSA News issue, I also contacted my Certas/State Farm agent, who was unaware of the 180-day limit but was subsequently advised by HQ that this is indeed (and has been) an annual maximum. He claims that this is […]

Travel Medical Subrogation

Posted date : Nov 7, 2017

I recently read an article where a Canadian couple had to make a significant claim on their travel insurance. The insurance company then went after their in-province insurance company for a good portion of the claim. This reduced the total life claim available from the person’s normal health insurance. If the travel and health insurance […]

Top-Up Insurance

Posted date : Nov 7, 2017

As a result of a recent medical trauma, I have discovered a disturbing aspect of the use of top-up insurance. In the event of a medical incident occurring late on the last day of primary insurance, it will probably not be covered by the primary insurer if treatment is not sought until the next day. […]
