Canadian insurance provider Allianz Global Assistance introduced its new COVID-19 Insurance and Assistance Plan late last year, offering travelers "up to $1 million in coverage for coronavirus-related emergency medical treatment."
Featuring no age limit, the plan covers travel to the US and other international destinations and can be "purchased on a standalone basis, or to supplement other standard out-of-country medical plans that may limit coverage for COVID-19, through Allianz Global Assistance’s national distribution network of more than 9,000 travel agencies and insurance brokers."
In addition to offering emergency care coverage while abroad, this Allianz Global Assistance plan also requires no medical questionnaire to qualify for purchase -- the exception is those who have previously tested positive for COVID-19, in which case proof of a negative test before travel is required.
With non-essential travel restricted due to ongoing pandemic safety measures, Allianz Global Assistance targets essential travelers by helping ensure their experience abroad is as convenient and safe as possible during an uncertain time.
