Emergency Evacuation

Not all medical facilities were created equal. Depending on the plan, Emergency Medical Evacuation insurance covers the cost of transporting a seriously injured or ill person to one of the following locations:

  • The nearest adequate medical facility
  • A hospital near home
  • Or the hospital of his/her choice

Emergency Medical Evacuation is usually included with both international medical insurance and travel protection plans, but unlike baggage insurance and trip cancellation insurance, it is also sold separately. Sufficient Emergency Medical Evacuation coverage is recommended, especially for long-distance trips.
