Kieve-Wavus is pleased to offer a Protection Plan which includes a “Cancel for Any Reason” benefit which can cover tuition reimbursement for the 2019 camp season for cancellation of the Camp/Program due to a reason not otherwise covered by the Protection Plan. While this letter is in no way a legal interpretation of the insurance offering, some key provisions are outlined below:

Cost of the Protection Plan: The Plan payment is 7.5% of tuition. The Plan payment will be charged at the time you accept the offering; coverage is based on the amount you have actually paid KWE at the time of cancellation.

Cancel for Any Reason benefit: If You cancel Your Program for any reason not otherwise covered by this Plan, benefits will be paid for the percentage of the Prepaid, forfeited, non-refundable Payments or Deposits You paid for Your Program as shown in the Cancellation Penalty Schedule shown below, provided: a) Your payment for this Plan and enrollment form are received with or before the final payment for Your Program; and b) You cancel Your Program two (2) days or more before Your Scheduled Program Departure Date.

These benefits will not duplicate any other benefits payable under the Plan or any coverage(s) attached to the Plan. Note; the Cancel for Any Reason benefit is not available to residents of the state of New York.

Cancellation Coverage: Coverage varies with amounts paid and with the camp’s refund policy.

Kieve-Wavus Education’s policy requires Deposits be paid at time of acceptance and full tuition paid by March 1, 2019. Deposits and tuitions are non-refundable. Under these conditions, tuition insurance will, in many instances, cover 75% of the amount you have paid KWE. See the brochure available through the Application for specifics.

The Travel Protection Plan also includes an Accident & Sickness Medical Expense benefit: This benefit may fill gaps between actual costs and one’s private medical coverage such as deductibles, copayments and out of network providers. Coverage is based on Usual and Customary charges.

Kieve–Wavus believes a Protection Plan can be valuable. As with all plans that include insurance benefits and services, the specific plan details are very important. The Plan Document can be obtained through the Camp Minder portal or by calling Customer Service at (800) 423-3632 and refer to Plan ID# F530E. Plan details should be reviewed prior to purchase of the Plan.
