Other / Medical or insurance (acronym)
English term or phrase: ASL
"As I am going on holiday in July with all my family, I'd like to take out a comprehensive insurance policy which covers any type of car accident, even hotel accommodation if I have a breakdown plus all medical expenses, as I am touring the States that aren't covered by our *ASL*."

Procurei a sigla por todo o lado e não encontro nada que faça sentido. Será um seguro? Um sistema de saúde? Ou um malfadado erro tipográfico?
