MedjetAssist is a membership program, not a health insurance plan or travel insurance plan. As a membership program, it offers more and better services...and better value. Unlike the competition, MedjetAssist arranges medical flight and medical repatriation services for its members, both worldwide and domestically. Our members choose if they want to continue their hospital care at their home hospital, or any other hospital of their choice in their home country, through our network of authorized affiliates. And there are no additional costs to worry about and no limits on total air-medical transport expenses.
MedjetAssist arranges medical transport and medical repatriation services to the member's home hospital or hospital of their choice in their home country. The competition generally restricts transports to the nearest hospital that provides "appropriate care." This means individuals are taken to a hospital the shortest distance away that has adequate care, but not necessarily the best care.
Only MedjetAssist arranges medical flight services within the United States as well as abroad. Travel insurance plans and platinum card benefits only cover travel in other countries. If a MedjetAssist member becomes ill or injured and is hospitalized while traveling 150 miles or more from their primary residence as listed on their membership in the U.S. or abroad, MedjetAssist will arrange transfer to the member's home hospital, or the hospital of their choice in their home country. If a MedjetAssist Elite or Plus member is hospitalized in their hometown hospital and requires the services that only a specialty hospital (center of excellence) can provide, MedjetAssist will arrange medical transfer for that member to the specialty hospital in their home country, provided it is more than 150 miles from the member's home hospital.
