Covered if purchased within 14 days of trip deposit
A pre-existing condition is an illness or medical condition that existed before a policy’s effective date, usually excluded from coverage. Travel Protection plans may include coverage provided you meet the condition of that insurance provider. Many providers offer coverage if the policy is purchased within a certain number of days after the initial trip deposit was made. A few providers offer coverage if the policy is purchased before the final payment date. Please refer to the policy summary to determine any conditions for coverage. Some Medical Plans may provide limited coverage; some may cover pre-existing conditions after a specified waiting period, while others do not provide any coverage.
