Medical Evacuation

Covers transport to an appropriate medical facility in the case of an illness or injury when there is no adequate care locally.

Emergency medical evacuation coverage provides assistance in situations where the insured needs to be evacuated immediately due to an emergency medical situation. This coverage helps ease the cost of emergency transportation to the nearest medical facility often by helicopter or ambulance. This coverage is an important feature for anyone traveling from their home country but especially those going on a cruise or traveling to remote areas. This benefit covers all or part of the cost of emergency transportation, by air or ambulance, after the incident and subsequent transportation to your home country or another medical facility to recover. Some plans may also cover the cost of transportation for a loved one to be by your side in your time of need and the cost of transportation of returning dependent children home.
