Plan Description

The Student Accident Plan is an inexpensive and comprehensive way to protect families from financial hardships they may face as a result of an accident. Each year, thousands of families are left unprotected when their child is injured at school or while participating in non-school activities. With over 20 benefits, the Student Accident Plan provides financial protection for expenses not normally covered under government health or group insurance plans.

Peace of mind is affordable with a Student Accident Plan.

Here are just some of the many benefits Travelance provides for less than a dollar a week:

Dental Accident Coverage – Unlimited expenses paid for in the first 10 years of injury for individuals 18 years of age or younger (1 year for ages 19 – 25)

This benefit can provide coverage for a variety of dental injuries. For example, if your child were to crack a tooth, this benefit could cover the reasonable and necessary expenses for its repair and treatment by a licensed Dentist. Coverage is available for up to 10 years following a dental injury due to an accident (1 year for individuals 19 – 25 years of age). If further treatment is needed after this timeframe, coverage is available up to a limit of $1,500 per tooth.

Tutoring Benefit – Up to $6,000

If as a result of an accident, your child is confined to his or her residence for over 30 days, this benefit can cover expenses for tutorial services provided by a qualified teacher. This benefit can also pay for the rental of necessary equipment and required program software.

Prosthetic Appliances – Up to $5,500

This benefit can cover the necessary costs for artificial limbs, eyes and/or hearing aids (up to a maximum of $5,500) for each injury that results in a loss requiring such an appliance.

Out-of-Province/Country Emergency Medical – Up to $100,000

If your child sustains an injury while travelling outside of their province or territory of residence, this benefit provides coverage for required emergency treatment, including the services of a physician, hospital, x-ray clinic, ground ambulance, necessary and reasonable alternative ambulance service up to $1,000, and/or a registered nurse (other than a family member). This benefit may also cover the costs for crutches, braces, splints, trusses or other prosthetic appliances, emergency medicine, blood, and/or plasma, and the rental costs for a wheelchair and/or hospital-type bed. Coverage is for any number of trips up to 30 days in duration.

Why do I need insurance for my child?

Did you know that the expenses from most physical accidents exceed the benefits provided by the government or group insurance plans?

The most minor accidents can result in major financial responsibilities and some expenses may not even be insured under your government or group insurance policies. The result – the parent/guardian become financially responsible.
