They will.

They also send you an email with a printable card, kind like the Trail Passes this year.

Thank you Gutz, this is probably one of the most important post on the whole forum, I never realized how affordable this coverage was. I always contact my health insurer in advance of leaving the country and have often bought a travel insurance policy when flying, but never realized how available and affordable this was. It really is a no-brainer, you get hurt 100 miles out in the woods, this will save your life. I am sure lots of people will benefit from this post .Many Thanks, Bob.

Something of thought, and I may be wrong. You get hurt badly out in the bush, I am guessing you will still have to wait hours for an EMT or police  to arrive  to evaluate you before they (police or EMTs) call for an air medic.  (Remember first responders will have to drive somewhere to pick up a snowmobile on a trailer, then drive to a spot to unload).  EMT's will still need to transport you to a place where the air med can land. And the first responders have to find a safe place for the air med to land, and if none, need to transport you to a safe place which could be a long way.  And night time throws in more time delaying variables. It would be worth finding out if the air medic would come based on the word of one of your riding buddies describing your injuries.

Another point to consider while on the subject of medical care:

1). If you are a US citizen covered by Medicare, your coverage may or may not cover you when traveling outside the US so check!

2). Some of the US healthcare policies may or may not provide coverage when traveling outside the US so you may want to check on supplemental travel coverage.

Very good point about medical care outside US. I am pretty sure my Medicare Advantage plan does not cover me while in Canada, I do need to check further.

Any idea the cost of supplemental health/travel insurance per week?

Thanks  vt_blu.           I  have been checking around on this a bit this fall after finding I was probably not covered in Canada. I still need to call my Advantage plan but reading all the literature, I think I already know the answer. Checking on line policies for medical travel Ins. is confusing due to all the precondition rules. I may first try stopping in at a local insurance agent first to see if they can help. Part of the problem is I am retired and head north on a whim, with no definite date of returning. Thus my travel dates are unpredictable.
