Travelling and Insurance

The University’s Long Term Disability Policy, the Medavie Blue Cross Medical Policy, the Accidental Death and Dismemberment Policy and the Excess Medical (Travel) Insurance all contain limitations of coverage based on certain travel destinations.

Our insurers have designated various regions or countries as “War Risk Zones” (PDF of areas currently designated as such) and coverage may be restricted in relation to travel or work in these zones. The latest Schedule of Designated War Risk Zones can be found at link to our war zone listing.

The Dalhousie University website may be of some interest to faculty, staff or students planning international travel.

Details including your Excess Travel card, policy number, coverage, and claims procedures for your Excess Medical (Travel) Insurance can be obtained by contacting the Human Resources Officer should you have any questions
