Travel accident and sickness insurance coverage
A portion of your program donation established by Habitat for Humanity covers the cost of travel accident and sickness insurance.
By paying your program donation, you will be enrolled in the travel accident and sickness insurance, covering medical costs arising from accidents, illnesses and accidental loss of life, limb, sight, speech or hearing while participating in volunteer activities sponsored and supervised by Habitat for Humanity. For participants traveling internationally, the policy also covers certain evacuations due to medical, weather or security emergencies. For participants traveling domestically (at least 100 miles from their primary residence), this policy also covers certain evacuations due to medical emergencies. This mandatory insurance coverage is designed to protect Habitat’s trip volunteers and is part of a comprehensive risk management program.
This plan of insurance is underwritten by CV Starr Insurance Company. This page is a brief description of benefits available under the insurance plan. It is not a contract of insurance. The terms and conditions of coverage are set forth in the policy on file with Habitat for Humanity International under policy number BTAI 273770.
