ADDITIONAL BENEFITS - Accident Medical Expense:

    🗸This benefit will reimburse Medical Expenses up to benefit maximum if Accidental Bodily Injury causes an Insured Person to first incur Medical Expenses for care and treatment of the Accidental Bodily Injury within 90 days after an Accident. The Benefit Amount for Accident Medical Expense is payable only for Medical Expenses incurred within 52 weeks after the date of the Accident causing the Accidental Bodily Injury. The Benefit Amount is subject to a Deductible. The Deductible will be deducted from any Benefit Amount for Accident Medical Expense that We pay. This Deductible applies separately to each Insured Person and each Accident.

In no event will We pay more than the Maximum Benefit Amount for Accident Medical Expense.
