International Emergency Evacuation Plan
Emergency Travel Medical Evacuation plans are designed to fill the gaps in international medical insurance plans (assuming it is not included in your existing plan) by providing coverage for emergency medical evacuation. Alternatively, your plan may have minimal coverage for evacuation, and you want to have a more comprehensive plan while abroad.
Do I need International Emergency Evacuation Coverage
The Center for Disease Control recommends it: “Domestic insurance policies may not cover medical evacuation from a resource-poor area to a hospital where definitive care can be obtained, which can cost more than $100,000.”
Fortunately, most people will never use the plan. But for those who do, the benefits far outweigh the costs and risk associated with not having a good plan. If you buy a high-quality travel medical plan, evacuation is typically included.
Why Purchase Emergency Services
What would you do if you or a member of your group needed to be moved to a qualified medical facility while traveling internationally? How would you deal with the language and currency barriers? Who do you call? Imagine trying to call your insurance company or plan administrator at 3:00 a.m. from a foreign country during a medical emergency. Will they be there when you need them the most? MedJet developed a plan to provide you and your family Coverage Without Boundaries.
A typical plan may include all or some of the following:
- Emergency Trabsportation
