Claim forms and instructions can be found here, or you can call us at 855-762-6252 , Monday – Friday, 9am – 5pm Eastern, to request the appropriate claim form be emailed to you.
What do I need to submit with my claim form?
Each claim form includes instructions and lists the required documents - such as receipts - to be submitted for that type of claim.
How long will it take for my claim to be reviewed?
You will receive an email notice when we receive your claim. The initial review of a claim can take up to 30 days. If more information is needed, we will contact you at that time. When required documentation is missing, it takes longer to process a claim, since we must then request and wait for that documentation to be submitted. This is why it’s important to save and gather any receipts prior to submitting your claim.

What if I change my mind and decide not to take my trip? Will my claim be covered?
If you think you will simply change your mind about traveling, your best option is to purchase the

How do I appeal the claim decision?
Claim appeals should be submitted in writing along with any additional documentation or explanation in support of your claim.
Why do I need to submit proof of payment?
The proof of payment gives us confirmation of what was paid, when payment was made and to whom payment was made, all of which are necessary to accurately assess your loss.
My airline ticket is non-refundable. Why are you checking if I received a refund?
In some circumstances, an airline may issue a refund or partial refund on a non-refundable ticket.
Why are you requesting medical information?
Medical information may be needed to confirm whether or not a condition is covered under your plan. It also allows us to review and determine if other plan provisions apply.
