Travel Insurance FAQ

If I need to be medically evacuated during my travel, who decides where?

Last Updated:

The medical evacuation benefit for most comprehensive travel insurance plans is based on medical necessity as determined by the physician and assistance company. A few plans are now offering “Hospital of Choice” as an added benefit. There are also medical evacuation membership programs that offer the member complete choice. As a MedjetAssist member, if you are hospitalized virtually anywhere in the world, simply call MedjetAssist and a specially equipped aircraft with a medical
team can be dispatched to bring you to your home hospital or hospital of your choice so you can be treated by your personal physician and be close to your family.
