Why DiveAssure

What makes DiveAssure your best choice? All programs offer primary coverage. We are dedicated exclusively to diving insurance, and together with Duke Dive Medicine, the world’s leaders in diving medicine, you are guaranteed the best coverage and services. Our plans can be tailored to your specific needs to save you money.

Primary Insurance

DiveAssure is the only Diving Insurance provider offering Primary insurance (as opposed to secondary insurance) which means faster payment and less hassle to you. A primary policy will, as a rule, pay to the service providers directly and without delay, disregarding any other policy that you or others may have. Having primary coverage can save you unnecessary expense and anxiety in times of distress. Additionally, filing a claim with DiveAssure on a primary basis will not, in most cases, affect your health insurance rates.
