Supplemental Travel Insurance

With Added Medjet Protection

Having the right travel insurance plan in place before departing for a big trip is just as necessary as booking a flight or hotel room when traveling. Unexpected events such as illness, injury, severe weather, or an emergency can not only threaten your trip, but threaten your life. Travel insurance protects an individual from the unforeseen, often covering medical and hospital expenses incurred while away from home, emergency evacuations, lost luggage, or trip cancellations.

It is important to review a travel insurance policy thoroughly to understand the scope of its coverage and its limitations. The medical evacuation component of most traditional travel insurance polices will not provide true hospital of choice air medical transport. Should you become seriously ill or injured while traveling and want to go to your home country hospital, the air medical transport out-of-pocket costs can range from a few thousand to more than one hundred thousand dollars.

MedjetAssist is an air medical transport membership program that provides supplemental travel protection benefits to traditional travel insurance polices. Medjet provides these important benefits for its members, both domestically and internationally. If a member becomes sick or injured more than 150 miles from home anywhere in the world, MedjetAssist arranges medical transportation to a home-country hospital of their choice. Medical necessity is not required. Even if the facility where the member is hospitalized is considered to have adequate care, as long as the member is hospitalized as an inpatient, they can choose to be transferred to another hospital.

Unlike many supplemental travel insurance policies, Medjet members under 75 are not excluded because of preexisting conditions. There are no service area restrictions, limitations on the amount or type of travel, or cap on monetary benefits. Because we are not an insurance company, there are no premiums or claim forms to fill out. Once we are contacted regarding your situation, we handle all communications between hospitals and countries on your behalf. Finally, there are no hidden fees or unexpected costs. The member will never pay more than their membership fee for our services.

A Medjet membership also provides a few added extras, including medical referrals; medical monitoring and consultation between the patient, physicians, and family; telephone interpretation; emergency message relay; and legal referrals if needed.

Our members travel for a variety of reasons. That’s why we have a variety of memberships to choose from. Whether traveling for business or pleasure, you’re a global jetsetter or embarking on a once-in-a-lifetime trip, you will find a membership that fits your needs. Medjet offers single or family memberships in addition to specially tailored memberships for college students, seniors, and even motorcycle owners. Purchase a MedjetAssist air medical transport membership as a supplement to your travel insurance policy for comprehensive coverage and peace of mind during your travels.
