- Pre-existing medical conditions (unless your customer is eligible for waiver of this exclusion )
- Inclement weather events that were already predicted and named when the plan was purchased
- Participation in high-risk sports or activities listed in plan documents
- War (declared or undeclared) or acts of war
- Alcohol or drug abuse
- Other exclusions, which vary between plans
Free look period
If your customer receives their plan documents and situations they were expecting protections for are listed as exclusions, they have 15 days (or more, depending on their state of residence) to request a refund, provided they haven’t started their trip or initiated a claim. Premiums are non-refundable after this period.
