MedjetAssist made arrangements to bring Dr. McLain home to Birmingham as
soon as she was medically stable for travel. “As a doctor, you get used
to all the red tape and delays of dealing with insurance companies,”
Dr. McLain says. “Dealing with MedjetAssist was a totally different
experience. We called them at a time when our lives were disrupted and
full of anxiety. They took total control over all arrangements to
transport me home. All details were considered, and each and every
contact was courteous, compassionate and helpful. MedjetAssist
transported me promptly, safely and professionally. They surpassed even
my highest expectations.”
Travel agents Pat and Bob Watson faithfully carry their MedjetAssist card on their many travels, and they have always encouraged MedjetAssist travel medical protection for their clients. The pair has a newfound appreciation for MedjetAssist since their own brush with a medical crisis on a return trip form Hong Kong. The husband and wife team run Watson and Watson, LTD, in Scarsdale, New York. They were on the first leg of their journey home from an overseas symposium for Virtuoso Travel Agents when something went terribly wrong.
Sixty-year-old Norine Gettys proposed a special outing for her family during a fall trip to their favorite Hawaiian island, Kauai. Climbing aboard All-Terrain Vehicles (ATVs) the group followed a guide into a lush jungle, planning to picnic at a local waterfall. Just one hour into the excursion, things went drastically wrong.
Most business travelers don't have to worry about the perils of crocodile bites, malaria and shrapnel wounds when they hit the road on behalf of their employers, but for the reporters, producers and photographers of National Geographic Television, these are very real considerations. It's no wonder then, that National Geographic Television provides MedjetAssist medical transportation memberships for almost 100 employees. These days, even companies with more traditional lines of business see the value in protecting employees who are frequent business travelers.
Annual memberships are available to residents of the United States, Canada and Mexico who travel domestically and internationally.
