About pre-existing conditions

In general:

  • No benefit will be paid if the claim occurs during the “pre-existing condition trial period” and is the result of an illness or accident connected to a “pre-existing condition.”
  • Any illness or injury for which you have received treatment including: being hospitalized for, had surgery for, received therapy for, consulted a medical practitioner for or taken medication for during the “pre-existing condition occurrence period” immediately prior to your coverage effective date.
