Eduhealth Essentials AmTrust

Policy Summary
Welcome to the EduHealth Essentials Plan, a private medical insurance plan designed to give you fast access to quality private treatment in the UK. This policy summary does not contain the full terms of your health insurance plan, which can be found in the Members Guide & Policy Document and your policy schedule.

Significant features & benefits
The EduHealth Passport Plan will cover the cost of medically necessary treatment, as shown in the table below, if you live permanently in the UK and you have an acute surgical or medical condition. The plan will cover costs according to the schedule of fees associated with most of your healthcare needs, but may not cover all of them.


If you have chosen the option to apply an excess to your policy, the excess amount is payable once every plan year, if you make an eligible claim. Your excess will be applied to the first eligible treatment that you receive in each plan year. This is regardless of whether the treatment is for the same condition, a related condition, or for an entirely new condition.

Your policy is subject to one of three different types of underwriting, Full Medical Underwriting, Moratorium or Continued Personal Medical Exclusions. For details of what each of these terms means please refer to your Policy Document. Your policy schedule will show which type of underwriting applies to you.
