What is Medical Evacuation & Repatriation?

Medical Evacuation can provide coverage for transportation of a traveler to the nearest adequate medical facility in the event of a medical emergency during their trip. Repatriation can transport a traveler’s remains back home.

Most policies with Medical Evacuation coverage will transport a traveler to the nearest adequate medical facility. If the treating physician determines they should return home to receive further medical attention, this benefit can also cover those transportation expenses.

Please be aware that coverage and eligibility requirements for this benefit differ by policy. The tables below show the providers that offer Medical Evacuation & Repatriation coverage.

WORLDWIDE REPATRIATION

Subject to limitations on services described herein, when a Medjet Member becomes hospitalized as an inpatient due to illness or injury while traveling 150 miles or more from his or her Residence Address as defined herein, Medjet will arrange for medical transportation and repatriation services to the hospital of the Member’s choice in the Member’s Home Country.

Affiliate aircraft used for the medical transport of Medjet Members are fully equipped intensive care aircraft staffed with specially trained medical teams. However, if the Member’s condition permits, the Member will be transported by scheduled commercial airline while in the care of a Medjet authorized
medical escort.

MEDICAL TRANSPORT SERVICES

A. Availability

Medjet medical transport services are available to any Member who qualifies for medical transport services in accordance with these Rules and Regulations, is hospitalized as an inpatient 150 miles or more from his or her Residence Address and is accepted as a patient into an available inpatient bed by an admitting physician at the hospital of the Member’s choice in the Member’s Home Country.

Medjet medical transport services are not available to a Member with mild lesions, simple injuries such as sprains, simple fractures or mild illnesses that can be treated by local doctors and do not prevent the Member from continuing his or her trip or returning home without medical attention.

Both the originating and receiving hospitals must be accessible by ground ambulance to transport the Member to and from an airfield capable of accommodating a Medjet authorized aircraft (in the case of a medical transport via medically dedicated air transport) or a commercial aircraft (in the case of medical transport via commercial airline in the care of a Medjet authorized commercial medical escort).

Due to the limited medical facilities and testing available on cruise ships, the Member must be admitted to a hospital on shore before scheduling medical transport to another hospital.

The time frame for medical transport is dependent on affiliate aircraft availability, required permits and visas for the respective countries, and other factors that may be beyond Medjet’s control.

Members must have proper documentation to return to their country of residence. Medjet is not responsible for obtaining these documents in the event of a request for transport.

B. Commercial Medical Escort Service

Medjet will arrange for medical transport via commercial airline in business class, if available, in the care of a Medjet authorized commercial medical escort if:

1. the Member requires continued inpatient hospitalization;

2. the remaining inpatient hospitalization can be completed at a hospital of the Member’s choice in the Member’s Home Country; and

3. the Member can be returned by commercial airline in the care of a Medjet authorized commercial medical escort.

One (1) traveling companion may accompany each Member being transported via scheduled commercial airline, at no additional cost, via economy class.

C. Medically Dedicated Air Transport Service

Medjet will arrange for medical transport via medically dedicated air transport on a Medjet authorized aircraft if:

1. the Member requires continued inpatient hospitalization;

2. the remaining inpatient hospitalization can be completed at a hospital of the Member’s choice in the Member’s Home Country; and

3. the Member cannot be returned by commercial airline in the care of a Medjet authorized commercial medical escort.

One (1) traveling companion may accompany each Member being transported on a Medjet authorized aircraft during a medically dedicated air transport, at no additional cost, provided space is available and the Member’s care will not be compromised.

While Medjet makes every effort to accommodate its Members, due to limited space available on medical aircraft, the Member and any accompanying passenger are limited to one small carry-on bag each.

D. Transport Criteria

All arrangements for medical transport and repatriation will be made by Medjet. Decisions regarding the urgency of the case, the best timing and the most suitable means of transportation will be made by Medjet after consultation with the local attending physician.

Medical Assessment – Medjet will require a Medical Assessment in order to determine membership benefits and stability for transport. The Medical Assessment requires a consultation between the Member’s treating physician, who will provide a final or interim diagnosis that will require continued inpatient hospitalization, and a Medjet physician, who will review and evaluate the treating physician’s diagnosis in order to determine the Member’s transport requirements.

A Member must be medically stable for medical transport.

Affiliate aircraft used for the medical transport of Medjet Members are fully equipped intensive care aircraft staffed with specially trained medical teams. However, if the Member’s condition permits, the Member will be transported by scheduled commercial airline while in the care of a Medjet authorized medical escort.

MEDICAL TRANSPORT SERVICES

A. Availability

Medjet medical transport services are available to any Member who qualifies for medical transport services in accordance with these Rules and Regulations, is hospitalized as an inpatient 150 miles or more from his or her Residence Address and is accepted as a patient into an available inpatient bed by an admitting physician at the hospital of the Member’s choice in the Member’s Home Country. Medjet medical transport services are not available to a Member with mild lesions, simple injuries such as sprains, simple fractures or mild illnesses that can be treated by local doctors and do not prevent the Member from continuing his or her trip or returning home without medical attention.

Both the originating and receiving hospitals must be accessible by ground ambulance to transport the Member to and from an airfield capable of accommodating a Medjet authorized aircraft (in the case of a medical transport via medically dedicated air transport) or a commercial aircraft (in the case of medical transport via commercial airline in the care of a Medjet authorized commercial medical escort). Due to the limited medical facilities and testing available on cruise ships, the Member must be admitted to a hospital on shore before scheduling medical transport to another hospital.

The time frame for medical transport is dependent on affiliate aircraft availability, required permits and visas for the respective countries, and other factors that may be beyond Medjet’s control.

Members must have proper documentation to return to their country of residence. Medjet is not responsible for obtaining these documents in the event of a request for transport.

B. Commercial Medical Escort Service

2. the remaining inpatient hospitalization can be completed at a hospital of the Member’s choice in the Member’s Home Country; and

One (1) traveling companion may accompany each Member being transported on a Medjet authorized aircraft during a medically dedicated air transport, at no additional cost, provided space is available and the Member’s care will not be compromised.

While Medjet makes every effort to accommodate its Members, due to limited space available on medical aircraft, the Member and any accompanying passenger are limited to one small carry-on bag each.

D. Transport Criteria

All arrangements for medical transport and repatriation will be made by Medjet. Decisions regarding the urgency of the case, the best timing and the most suitable means of transportation will be made by Medjet after consultation with the local attending physician.

Medical Assessment – Medjet will require a Medical Assessment in order to determine membership benefits and stability for transport. The Medical Assessment requires a consultation between the Member’s treating physician, who will provide a final or interim diagnosis that will require continued inpatient hospitalization, and a Medjet physician, who will review and evaluate the treating physician’s diagnosis in order to determine the Member’s transport requirements.

A Member must be medically stable for medical transport.
