Important Information – COVID-19’
There is no cover under this policy for Coronavirus related claims (meaning COVID-19, SARS-COV-2 or any mutation or variation of these), except claims under Section 2 – Emergency Medical and other expenses, where cover will only apply IF the Beneficiary has had the first 2 doses of the Covid-19 vaccinations as recommended by the UK NHS and is up to date with each Covid-19 booster vaccination for which they are eligible, or they were medically unable to have the vaccinations as evidenced by their medical records.
If the Beneficiary meets this requirement, this Group Policy Travel Insurance will provide cover if the Beneficiary needs medical treatment for Coronavirus while abroad or they have to extend their trip because they contracted Coronavirus or they are compulsorily quarantined on the orders of a treating medical practitioner due to Coronavirus, suspected Coronavirus or exposure to someone who has been diagnosed with Coronavirus.
Please be aware that in the event of a claim, we will require a copy of the positive COVID-19 test result that the Beneficiary received from a registered medical practitioner or independent authority (e.g., private provider), or if the claim relates to the beneficiary being quarantined on the orders of a treating medical practitioner, we will require written proof of this.
Please note that a Positive Lateral Flow test (or a picture of a positive lateral flow test) without supporting evidence or certification is not sufficient proof of claim.
