2The Benefit Amounts shown above for Dental, Physical Therapy, Orthopedic Appliance, and Transportation are part of, and not in addition to, the Maximum

If an insured person has multiple losses as the result of one accident, the policy will only pay the single largest benefit amount applicable.
24-Hour AD&D Insurance:
covers you 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, anywhere in the world while at work or at play.
Accident Medical Expense:
This benefit will reimburse up to the maximum amount if accidental bodily injury causes you to first incur medical expenses for care and treatment within 90 days after an accident. The benefit amount for accident medical expense is payable only for medical expenses incurred within 52 weeks after the date of the accident causing the accidental bodily injury. The benefit amount is subject to the deductible and the maximum benefit amount. Payment of the benefit amount for accident medical expense is subject to the sub-limits for dental
, physical therapy, orthopedic appliances and transportation expenses shown. In no event will total payments for your dental care and treatment, physical therapy, orthopedic appliances, transportation and medical expense exceed the benefit amount for Accident Medical Expense. For residents of CT, ID, IN, MD, NJ, NY, and SD, this benefit is payable on a primary basis. For residents in all other jurisdictions, this benefit is payable on an excess basis; we will determine the reasonable and customary charge for the covered medical expense. We will then reduce that amount by amounts already paid or
payable by any other plan and will pay the resulting amount less the deductible. In no event will we pay more than the maximum benefit amount. The deductible will be deducted from any benefit amount for Accident Medical Expense that is paid. This Deductible applies separately to each Insured Person and each Accident.
Limitation on Accident Medical Expense: This benefit does not apply to charges and services 1) for which you have no obligation to pay; 2) for any injury where worker’s compensation benefits or occupational injury benefits are payable; 3) for any injury occurring while fighting
, except in self-defense; 4) for treatment that is educational, experimental or investigational in nature or that does not constitute accepted medical practice; 5) for treatment by a person employed or retained by the Policyholder; or 6) for treatment involving conditions caused by repetitive motion injuries, or cumulative trauma and not as the result of an accidental bodily injury. This insurance applies only to medically necessary charges and services.
Extensions of Insurance: Exposure
– If an accident causes you to be unavoidably exposed to the elements and as a result of such exposure you have a loss, then such loss will be insured under the policy.
– If you have not been found within 1 year of a disappearance, stranding, sinking, or wrecking of any conveyance in which you were an occupant at the
time of the accident, then it will be assumed, that you have suffered loss of life insured under the policy.
