FLEXIBLE TERMS + CONDITIONS
This is tricky, and you should ultimately consult your provider. However, the following may be helpful.
Currently, we do not know of any carriers covering cancellation due to COVID. COVID is a “known threat” or “known event”, much like a named hurricane.
You can consider purchasing a Cancel for Any Reason (CFAR) on eligible plans, usually for an added cost. Then, cancellation due to COVID could be covered, but only up to 75% of lost prepaid expenses. Note: Residents of some States can only get up to 50%. Residents of other States are not eligible for CFAR.
In many plans, there is medical coverage for the treatment of COVID-19. However, there could be situations where the lack of coverage for pre-existing conditions could create a gap in coverage.
