Out-of-Country Claims

If you have a medical emergency outside of Canada, contact Great-West Life as soon as possible.

If you are a resident of Saskatchewan, out-of-country claims should be submitted for consideration within six months of the date of service. This strict time limitation is determined by Saskatchewan Health and is subject to change.

The deadline for other provinces may be different, so please be aware of these time limits and submit your claim as soon as possible after the date of service.

Available Submission Method

You must submit a paper claim for all out-of-country expenses.

If you reside in Saskatchewan, complete the Statement of Claim Out-of-Country Expenses for each family member for whom you are claiming expenses.

If you reside outside of Saskatchewan, please contact Great-West Life to obtain the necessary forms.

Send the completed forms along with all original receipts and bills to:

Great-West Life
Attention: Out-of-Country Claims Department
PO Box 6000
Winnipeg MB  R3C 3A5

Processing and Payment

All eligible expenses for your claim will be paid, including the portion that is covered by your provincial medical plan. Your provincial medical plan will then reimburse Great-West Life for their share of the expenses, except for those provinces requiring you to mail your claim directly to their plan first (i.e., Manitoba, Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut).
