Renewal of Coverage

Subject to the terms of the plan, CrewSelect International is annually renewable and coverage is continuous when renewed. Prior to the end of each period of coverage (12 months) you will receive a renewal form. You must continue to meet the eligibility requirements in order to renew. There are no additional medical questions at renewal, and we can work with you to provide flexible renewable options. Please select your Excess carefully, as you will be unable to select a lower Excess when you renew your coverage.

Quality Guarantee

To ensure your satisfaction, once you are accepted in the plan, we provide a 15-day free look period to review the coverage. If during that 15-day period you find that you are not satisfied with the plan for any reason, you may submit a written request for cancellation and full refund of your premium received by IMG. See the Certificate Wording for full details.
