Short Answer

Yes, you may be covered to cancel your trip and be reimbursed your trip cost if you are required to work during your trip. This coverage is included in the Cancel for Work Reasons benefit.

More Detail

You may be covered to cancel your trip if you are required to work. Cancel for Work Reasons provides coverage if your previously approved time off has been revoked because you are required to work. In order to be eligible for this benefit, you are required to submit supporting documentation, such as a notarized statement from your employer or a company officer. Some plans also cover self-employed workers. If you are self-employed you may be required to submit proof of self-employment and your requirement to work.

To determine if your plan offers Cancel for Work Reasons coverage, please check the Policy Detail or policy certificate.
