Medical Evacuation Insurance
      #1740454 - 08/08/17 09:11 PM (96.32.194.30)

After hearing the story of injuried person on Anegada requiring Air Evacuation back to USA, I am wondering about purchasing annual plan as we(family) usually spend 6-8 weeks overseas per year. Anyone have advice on coverage? Plans?

We use MedJet. Thankfully, we've never had to use it!

Check out Skymed on the sponsors page. They have annual plans also. They also fly you home, some only get you to the closes facility. If you decide on Skymed use our link and we get a small commission.

Working with American Express we have coverage that will get us to both medical care and home on any travel that was charged to the card. We do not buy air travel that was not charged to those cards with those evacuation benefits. You simply contact the number on the back of the card and a US MD and local MD are put in contact with you to determine the required medical care and transportation. This is the same type of benefit I have enjoyed with my fortune 100 employers during any business travel. That is just one of the many member services American Express is built around. You may remember the old saying. "American Express do not leave home without it". We follow those rules when it comes to travel away from home.

Stormjib - you might want to double check your coverage. I thought the same thing and decided to check a couple of weeks ago to discover it was no longer a service that AMEX provided. They provide medical assistance which means they will help you find a doctor while traveling and will help arrange medical evacuation but my Business Platinum card does not reimburse for those costs. They are all paid by the card holder. I now have an annual plan from MedJet.

Please let me know if you find out otherwise!

Looked on the AMEX site. Only seem to offer death benefits but no real medical evacuation coverage.
