Each Patriot Green plan provides coverage for injuries and illness incurred as a result of an act of Terrorism, limited in amount and by circumstances. If an insured person is injured as a result of an act of Terrorism, and the insured person has no direct or indirect participation in the act, the plan will reimburse eligible medical claims subject to a $50,000 lifetime maximum. However, claims incurred as a result of radiological, nuclear, chemical or biological weapons or events are not covered.
Terrorism is defined as the systematic or planned use of violence, fear, or threat of violence in order to intimidate a population or government, especially as a means of coercion or to obtain a granting of any demand. However, this benefit does not cover an act of Terrorism in any country or location where the United States government has issued a travel advisory that has been in effect within the 6 months prior to the insured person's date of arrival.
This benefit also does not cover an act of Terrorism in the event that an advisory to leave a certain country or location is issued by the United States government after the insured person's arrival date, and the insured person unreasonably fails or refuses to depart the country or location.
Each Patriot Green plan covers injuries incurred during amateur athletic activities which are non-contact and engaged in by the insured person solely for leisure, recreation, entertainment or fitness purposes. Some of these sports and activities include, but are not limited to, motor cycle/motorscooter riding, scuba diving (to 10m), snorkeling, wakeboarding, and water skiing. However, activities not covered include amateur or professional sports or other athletic activity which is organized and/or sanctioned, or which involves regular or scheduled practices, games or competition.

To be covered under the Eco Sports Rider, these adventure activities must be engaged in solely for leisure, recreation, or entertainment purposes.

(U.S. citizens only) For those up to age 65 with a primary health plan, Patriot Green International will pay the Usual, Reasonable and Customary charges of a sudden and unexpected recurrence of a Pre-existing Condition (defined on the Exclusions page) up to the plan maximum. For those without a primary health plan, Patriot Green International will pay up to a $20,000 lifetime maximum. For those age 65 and older, with or without a primary health plan, Patriot Green International will pay up to a $2,500 lifetime maximum. The primary health plan must have existed prior to the effective date and during coverage of the Patriot Green plan, and the pre-existing condition must be covered under the primary health plan.
If, during a covered trip, there is a death of an immediate family member (spouse, child, parent or sibling), a break-in at the insured’s principle residence, or the substantial destruction of the insured’s principal residence due to a fire or natural disaster, each Patriot plan will pay to return the insured to the area of principal residence. The plan will pay for a one way air or ground transportation ticket of the same class as the unused travel ticket, less the value of the unused return ticket.
