Each participant is required to fill out a medical statement prior to his/her departure from their home country. Failure to do so will nullify his/her participation in the program.
The insurance policy will be canceled if the form is fallacious in anyway. The Organizers of “Israel Challenge” reserve the right to cancel anyone’s participation if his/her medical form is discovered to be misleading or deceptive in any way.
In the event of a medical problem, past or present declared in the insurance form, a letter from the family doctor must accompany the application explaining the nature of medical condition.
If the Participant has any past medical history, the insurance company withholds the right to require an addendum to the policy. This may cause an increase in the cost of the policy which must be paid by the Participant.
If any participant feels the need to purchase additional insurance to cover his/her personal belongings it must be done prior to their arrival to the program.
