Emergency Taxi and Travel Expense Benefit

This benefit will pay the reasonable expense incurred for a licensed taxi to transport the eligible member to the nearest hospital or a doctor’s office, where immediate medical attention is required. In certain circumstances Hockey Canada will consider the reimbursement of fuel for a volunteer who provides the same service due to immediate need of medical attention.

The Travel Expense Benefit will pay the cost of all reasonable travel expenses incurred as a result of an accidental injury. Treatment must begin within 30 days of an accident for coverage to apply.

Maximum $140 per accident

NOTE: For the emergency taxi benefit and the travel expense, all bills or receipts must be submitted.
