Pre-Existing Conditions

The insurer will not pay any Emergency Travel Medical Care Benefits for any claims relating directly or indirectly to a pre-existing condition that is not stable within the nine-month period immediately preceding the date of departure from the insured’s province/territory of residence. This means any condition, injury, illness, disease or related complication in relation to which:

  • An insured has had new symptoms, or existing symptoms have become more frequent or more severe, or there has been a test result showing deterioration;
  • A physician (or other medical professional) has prescribed or recommended a change in medication (the medication dosage or frequency has been reduced, increased, or stopped, and/or new medication has been prescribed) taken for that condition;
  • A physician (or other medical professional) has prescribed or recommended a change in treatment for that condition; or
  • There has been an admission to a hospital and/or results are awaited for further investigation for that condition during such nine-month period. This exclusion does not apply to minor ailments or a change in medication where the active ingredient and strength remain the same (i.e., generic).

Once you receive your Policy, examine it carefully. If you are not satisfied, simply return your Policy to Manulife within 30 days and request that your coverage be cancelled. Your premiums will be refunded in full – no questions asked!

Your coverage generally starts on the 1st of the following month for health and dental plans that offer guaranteed acceptance, and the 1st of the month after your plan is approved for health and dental plans that require a medical questionnaire.

If your payment method of choice is either by credit card or Pre-Authorized Debit (PAD), and the credit card or account number shown on your Premium Notice is correct, you don't need to do anything. We will charge your premium payment to your account in the month in which your premium is due, and apply it to your coverage. If your Payment Method is by cheque, send a cheque for the full amount to us by the Anniversary Due Date. Your Premium Notice will include details of how you can pay.

If you ever wish to cancel your coverage, all you have to do is mail us a written notification bearing your signature. Your coverage will end beginning with the Payment Due date following the date on which we receive your cancellation request. If, within 30 days of first receiving your Policy or Certificate of Insurance, you return it to us along with your written and signed cancellation request, we will refund your premiums in full.
