Why Do I Need
Supplemental Medical Evacuation Insurance?
No matter where you choose to travel or study abroad, there's always a chance you could incur an injury or illness as you adjust to your new environment. If your regular health insurance does not cover medical evacuation expenses incurred, abroad, then you may need supplemental medical evacuation insurance.
International students may also need medical evacuation coverage to satisfy the insurance requirements mandated by their U.S. study abroad program or visa.
How Does Emergency Medical Evacuation Work?
If you face a covered, life-or-limb-threatening injury or illness in a remote location where the local treating facility cannot provide the medically necessary care, your Emergency Medical Evacuation benefit will pay up to $50,000 to transport you to the nearest hospital via air or ground ambulance. We will work with On Call International, our emergency travel assistance service provider, to coordinate your travel arrangements.
