As a Good Sam member, you receive travel medical coverage for an unlimited number of two-day trips a year for traveling between the U.S. and Canada. Your coverage includes assistance with replacing prescription medication you’ve lost or forgotten and, in the event of a medical emergency, arranging billing with the hospital on your behalf. You can also rely on knowledgeable expertise and support from TIC* that helps you focus on your recovery rather than how you’re going to pay for it.

When planning your travels between the U.S. and Canada, most RVers may not typically think about travel medical insurance coverage prior to departure. However, once you cross the border, it’s up to you to arrange and pay for your medical care. When you stop to consider the additional costs that may be accrued in the instance of a medical emergency, you can quickly see how this type of coverage is critical.

If you’ll be traveling for longer than two days, additional coverage is also available. When considering upgrading your complimentary travel medical insurance coverage, you may first want to think about how much coverage you may need. To help you in this dilemma, here are some examples of what medical treatment may cost per day in Canadian hospitals:

Region Hospital name Intensive care Daily ward
Ontario Ottawa Hospital $5,785 $3,100
Prairies Calgary Foothills $16,000 $4,332
British Columbia Vancouver General $11,435 $3,235

    Waht about travel insurance for Canadians going to the US?

    Good Sam says: Unfortunately, we don’t currently have a program that provides medical insurance for Canadian members traveling to the United States.

  2. Henny de Gruijter says:

    That seems kind of discriminating against Canadians, we pay the same annual rate with less benefits I think.

  3. John Orman says:

    I have just read about the medical travel insurance available for two day trips when U.S.A. residents visit Canada. What about Good Sam members, resident in Canada, that visit another Canadian Province, or vist the USA. Does Good Sam cover them for two days? If not, is this being considered?.

  4. Mark Walsh says:

    The 2 day travel insurance IS available to Canadians travelling to US. Canadians have to call in and register each year and if you do not register you do not automatically have the insurance.. The insurance is offered through Cooperators and TIC. The one hitch is that if you are out of your home Province ad want the insurance they will NOT provide it. I already tried to obtain it last month but TIC refused and wanted to sell me a year insurance for $2,860.

    Good Sam, perhaps you can comment on this refusal to offer the insurance because I was travelling across Canada and wanted to enter the US for a few days on several occasions along the way.

  5. Good Sam says:
