Health insurance plan offers Canadians treatment abroad

VUMI Canada, in partnership with Humania Assurance, is offering a new product for the Canadian market. Prestige VIP is an international private medical insurance plan with travel options for Canadians, offering them easy access to doctors and hospitals worldwide. In practice VUMI is hoping that Canadian customers will use their facilities in the USA.

Outside of Canada, the plan has providers in its network, allowing Canadians to seek treatment with the medical provider of their choice.

In Canada, the plan complements the Provincial Health Insurance cover and/or any other employer healthcare plan, allowing them to have more options and the peace of mind of being able to access the best treatment when they need it most.

Prestige VIP is underwritten by Humania Assurance and is available for individuals, third party administrators (TPA) and corporations. The individual plan offers deductible options starting at C$250 and a maximum cover of up to C$5m per policy year, per person up to the age of 75. For third party administrators (TPAs), the plan has cover up to C$1m, and for corporate groups, cover ranges from C$1m up to C$5m.

Humania Assurance is a Canadian insurer. VUMI Canada is a Canadian company owned by VUMI Group, an international healthcare group based in Dallas, Texas.
