Every policy is unique so this would depend entirely on what the specific policy exemptions were. If this was ruled as an accidental overdose, then it likely would be covered. If it was suicide, there is usually some type of period when it won't cover, usually the first 2 or 3 years, then it might cover.
So the policy would have to be closely read to see what exemptions apply to the coverage of the policy.
