Am I Automatically Covered?
It is important to understand that Pre-existing medical conditions may not be covered under your policy. Certain Pre-existing medical conditions are covered automatically within certain criteria for travellers who are insured under the Comprehensive and Frequent Traveller policies only. Cover for conditions outside of those listed in Section 2 may be available following a medical assessment. Please note that no cover for Pre-existing medical conditions is available under the Essentials policy.
