 Click here to apply

Puhl Employee Benefits Inc. is pleased to announce a new affinity program available immediately to all COPA members.

The Emergency Medical Travel (EMT) Program, underwritten through SSQ Insurance, has been exclusively designed by COPA and has been customized to meet the specific needs of the COPA memberships and their families. In addition to regular EMT plan coverages, designed to cover emergency medical costs outside of your province of residence, this program includes coverage for the pilot and all dependent family members while you are piloting an aircraft in the event of an indiscriminate landing.

Current travel plans available to the general public do not provide coverage while piloting an aircraft. In the event of an indiscriminate landing outside your province of residence you would be personally responsible for all medical expenses incurred.

The COPA EMT program covers this risk for an annual fee of $249.00. This includes coverage for all dependent family members as well.

Insured: Clients under age 70, three months pre-ex ages 65-70.*

Coverage: emergency injury or sickness while travelling outside of their province of residence.  All trips up to 45 days per trip maximum.

Pilots for commercial and non-commercial use. The aircraft wording under excess medical reads:
Owned aircrafts, pilots and passengers.

Maximum $1,000,000 per injury or sickness per person including benefits for:

$1,000 - Ambulance ground
$15,000 - Medical evacuation            
$5,000 - Repatriation due to death
$5,000 - Family transportation
$500 - Return of vehicle            
$1,000 - Hotel convalescence

SSQ Insurance provides traveling member’s worldwide emergency assistance services 24 hours per day, seven days a week.

One phone call to one of the numbers listed on your Puhl/SSQ Travel membership card connects you to a network of multilingual specialists who will assist you with medical, personal and travel related problems when away from home.
