Medical evacuation benefits on expat medical insurance is a big part of your international medical insurance investment. Residing in the U.S., many of us take for granted the types of ambulance service swe have in this great country. Ambulance systems from land based ambulances to different types of air ambulances. Plus, let us not forget our wonderful fire fighters in cities and countries through our amazing country. Many other countries have great ambulance services too but many countries do not. That is where your overseas medical insurance benefits come in handy.
Here are different types of international evacuation cover that an expat and traveler could get from a U.S. based international insurance cover:
Medical Evacuation Benefit:
- Medical evacuation insurance also known as emergency medical transportation and this benefit is on all of our international medical insurance policies here at Good Neighbor Insurance.
- Most evacuation insurance will cover up to 250,000USD up to 500,000USD.
- Two of our best international travel insurance plans who have superb evacuation cover are:
- The Patriot International plan at https://www.socialgoodinsurance.com/patriot-short-term-travel-and-evacuation-plan/
- Voyager Choice at https://www.socialgoodinsurance.com/hth-geoblue-voyager-choice-short-term-travel-insurance/
- For one of our best expatriate medical insurance plans that have a strong medical evacuation benefit head over to our Navigator insurance at https://www.socialgoodinsurance.com/hth-geoblue-navigator-overseas-travelers/.
- If you think you may need a medical evacuation, immediately call the insurance company, regardless of the plan that you are on. Their team will work together with the doctors to determine if evacuation is needed and the best place to evacuate to, taking into consideration the patient’s condition and location of adequate medical facilities. The insurance company makes all the arrangements.
- Comes into play when the U.S. State Department (or similar governmental organization) issues a warning for their citizens to leave a location. Again, you contact the insurance company and they will make appropriate arrangements. This benefit is void if there is a travel warning already in place.
- One of our best travel plans for political evacuation is our Diplomat Insurance at https://www.gninsurance.com/diplomat-international-travel-medical-insurance/.
Natural Disaster Evacuation:
- Each travel insurance will have different rules regarding this type of evacuation.
- No benefit would be payable if there was a warning. Usually up to 60 days. For example, if you were going to travel around a volcano that was erupting or had just erupted then this benefit would not be applicable. Especially if there was a travel warning in place. But if you were at or around that volcano prior to any travel warning then one could use this natural disaster benefit.
- Not all travel insurance plans provide the natural disaster evacuation benefit.
- One of our top travel plans for this type of benefit is the Diplomat International travel insurance at https://www.gninsurance.com/diplomat-international-travel-medical-insurance/. This travel insurance plan was especially made with outdoor travelers in mind.
