"Acute onset of pre-existing conditions" is defined as a sudden and unexpected outbreak or recurrence of a pre-existing Conditions which occurs spontaneously and without advance warning in the form of Physician recommendations or symptoms, is of short duration, is rapidly progressive, and requires urgent care. The Acute Onset of a Pre-existing Conditions must occur after the effective date of the policy. Treatment must be obtained within 24 hours of the sudden and unexpected outbreak or recurrence. A Pre-existing Condition that is a chronic or congenital condition or that gradually becomes worse over time will not be considered Acute Onset.  To learn more, visit Acute onset of Pre-existing conditions
