General informations

  • What is an "Alarm Centre"?

    Telephonic assistance facilities and intervention team comprising doctors, technicians and operators provided by Evasan to their clients and (within the frame of this contract) to those of the RVS 24/7. In case of any imminent or declared incident all insured have the obligation to contact immediately the Alarm Centre in order to notify the insurer.

  • What are the periods of cover?

    1. The effective duration of the insured person’s sojourn. Each period of cover has to be within the duration of the contract, i.e. the beginning and the end have to be included in the duration of this cover. The exact date of the beginning is laid down in the policy

    2. As to the insurance cover for travel assistance, the duration of the actual cover cannot last for more than 90 consecutive days.

  • What is an incident (claim)?

    The unintentional damagable event that occurs within the period of cover and under the conditions specified in the policy and which causes the insurer to fulfill his obligation to provide his services to the insured claimant within the legal and contractual constraints.

  • When does the risk enter the domain of health insurance coverage?

    1. A risk materialises and is considered a case for the health in- surance coverage when due to illness or accident the necessity arises to grant medical care or treatment.

    2. The risk comes into effect when the medical treatment com- mences and it ends, as soon as the indispensable medical re- sults show that further treatment is no longer necessary.

    3. Should the treatment be extended to an illness or the con- sequences of an accident and is in no causal relationship to the incident occurred, the claim will be considered a new one.

    4. Also covered is the maternity care comprising consultations, treatment and medical examinations directly related to the pregnancy and made before, during, and after the birth. Ambulatory medical exams that are prescribed by law for targeted diagnostical purposes are also assimilated to a claim.

  • What is an accident?

    Any damaging, sudden, unforeseeable and involuntary injury affecting the human body that is caused by a violent and external source which affects the physical health of the insured party and can be identified objectively.

  • What is a sudden illness?

    Any unintended negative change in health that requires profes- sional examination, treatment or medical care and which is not due to an accident or a pre-existing condition.

  • What is a pre-existing condition?

    1. Any change in health, disease, illness or infirmity, be it physical or psychological that objectively existed prior to the signature of the insurance contract and whose manifestation, consequences or complications require treatment, professional examination, tests or a medical intervention during the period of cover by the insurance.

    2. It is therefore strongly recommended that travellers undergo a thorough medical check-up at their own expense prior to take an insurance policy and to undertaking the voyage.

  • What is a hospitalisation?

    1. Admission to a hospital establishment for medical intervention for a period of at least 24 hours.

    2. A hospital establishment comprises clinics and medical units that are managed by doctors and medical staff and serve without exception sick people and people having had an accident

    3. Not comprised are wellness hotels and thermal baths, establishments for elderly people and chronically-ill as well as socialmedical and similar establishments which are not suited for the treatment of acute illness.

    4. Thermal and cure resorts are establishments that are officially recognized thermal baths/resorts. They are run as well as placed under the surveillance of a physician.

  • What is a stabilisation centre?

    The place where the insured party is taken following an incident in view to preparing for transfer or repatriation.
