result of a Covered Activity covered under the terms of the policy.

 

Heart or Circulatory Conditions Benefit (Multiply Above Accident Premium by 1.05): The policy will include coverage for Covered Expenses incurred by a Covered Person as a result of heart or circulatory conditions that: Occur and manifest themselves while participating in a Covered Activity (or within 24 hours after participation); and The Covered Person has neither received nor been advised to have any medical treatment for the condition. If the Covered Person suffers loss of life resulting from the heart or circulatory condition within 90 days from the date of participation in the Covered Activity, the benefit amount for Loss of Life, as shown under the Accidental Death & Dismemberment Benefit, will be payable.

 

Pre-existing Injury Benefit (Multiply Above Accident Premium by 1.15) The policy will include coverage for Covered Expenses resulting from re-aggravation of an injury that occurred prior to the effective date of
this policy. In order to be eligible for this coverage, the Covered Person must: Have received a written medical clearance from a Doctor to participate in the Policyholder's Covered Activity; and be participating in
the Policyholder�s Covered Activity when the re-aggravation occurs.

 

Short-Term Emergency Sickness Benefit (Multiply Above Accident Premium by 1.95) The policy will include coverage for Covered Expenses incurred by a Covered Person as a result of an Emergency Sickness while participating in a Policyholder's short-term Covered Activity. "Emergency Sickness" means an illness or disease diagnosed by a Physician which causes a severe or acute symptom that, if not provided with immediate treatment, would reasonably be expected to result in deterioration of a Covered Person's health or place his life in jeopardy; and which first manifests itself suddenly and unexpectedly while a Covered Person is participating in a Covered Activity.  "Covered Expenses" means charges incurred for treatment of an Emergency Sickness that would have met the definition of Covered Expenses applicable to treatment of injuries sustained in a Covered Accident, had they been incurred for a Covered Accident rather than an Emergency Sickness. Any expenses that are not Covered Expenses under the Accident Medical Benefits section of the policy will not be considered Covered Expenses under the Emergency Sickness Benefit. All related conditions and recurring symptoms of the Emergency Sickness will be considered one sickness. The coverage is subject to the Deductible (if any) and subject to a $2,500.00 maximum benefit for each sickness.

 

$5,000.00 Maximum Medical Expense Benefit (Multiply Above Accident Premium by 0.65). The policy's maximum medical expense benefit will be reduced from $10,000 to $5,000 per injury. The liability coverage however will not be available as the liability insurance requires that there is an underlying accident medical policy with at least a $10,000 benefit.
