Travel accident and sickness insurance coverage
A portion of your trip cost established by Habitat for Humanity covers the cost of travel accident and sickness insurance.
By paying your trip cost, 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. The policy also covers certain evacuations due to medical, weather or security emergencies. This mandatory insurance coverage is designed to protect Habitat’s Global Village trip volunteers and is part of a comprehensive risk management program.
This plan of insurance is underwritten by ACE American Insurance Company and operated by CHUBB NA. 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 numbers GLM N10784177 and PTP N11207522, international and domestic travel, respectively.
