Emergency Evacuation Cover
The costs of emergency medical care in a foreign country can accumulate quickly, especially if evacuation from that country becomes necessary. Expatriate health insurance plans provide coverage for emergency medical evacuations from countries that are not comprehensivley equipped with treatment or modern facilities.
In the event of an emergency, the insurance company along with an attending doctor will assess the situation and determine the appropiate action. This may involve finding the nearest medical centre of excellence that is able to care for the client, and arranging for an efficient evacuation.
As it is not uncommon for peoplke to travel with friends or family, medical insurance plans may cover the transportation costs both the policy holder and another party.
If the policyholder dies while overseas the insurance plan will cover transportation of remains to their home country.
