When does military insurance cover begin and end?

Military insurance covers the whole period during which the insured person carries out a service activity.

Military insurance covers also the weekends between two weeks of service and short periods of leave during the service. It also covers the journey to and from the location of the service activity.
The health insurance and accident insurance do not apply.

Once a claim is accepted, the military insurance covers all the costs until the insured person has recovered, with no time limit. Military insurance also covers delayed consequences and relapses associated with the insured damage to health.
