While the certificate is in effect, the benefit period does not apply. Upon termination of the certificate, in accordance with this provision, we will pay eligible medical expenses for up to 90 days beginning on the first day of diagnosis or treatment of a covered injury or illness while you are outside your home country. The benefit period applies only to eligible medical expenses related to the injury or illness that began while the certificate was in effect.

In the event you begin a benefit period while the certificate is in effect, and the certificate terminates because you return to your home country, we will pay eligible medical expenses which are incurred in your home country during the benefit period. Home country coverage applies only to eligible medical expenses related to the injury or illness that began while the certificate was in effect.

INCIDENTAL HOME COUNTRY COVERAGE

U.S. home country: For every three month period during which you are covered, eligible medical expenses incurred in the U.S. are covered up to a maximum of 15 days.

Any benefit accrued under a single three month period does not accumulate to another period. Failure to continue your international trip or your return to your home country for the sole purpose of obtaining treatment for an illness or injury that began while traveling shall void any home country coverage provided under the terms of this agreement.

Except for a benefit period, coverage provided under this Master Policy is for a maximum duration of 364 days.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, coverage under all plans shall terminate on the date we, at our sole option, elect to cancel all members of the same sex, age, class or geographic location, provided we give no less than 30 days advance written notice by mail to your last known address.
