Why travelers trust Travel MedEvac U.S. Residents

Travel MedEvac U.S. Residents

Travel MedEvac is the premium medical evacuation coverage that brings you to your home hospital of choice where you can get the continued care you need, where you want it, from your trusted hospital and doctors.  Travel MedEvac has no pre-existing exclusions or waiting periods and utilizes only the highest accredited global network of air ambulance companies in the world for your transport.

We do not restrict medical evacuation to the "nearest adequate facility" as other plans do. "Nearest Adequate Facility" limitations found in other plans could leave you far from home, in foreign countries, away from your doctors, away from your healthcare network and away from your family. Travel MedEvac brings you to your home hospital of choice where you can get the continued care you need, where you want it, from your trusted hospital and doctors.

If you are traveling more than 150 miles from your home throughout the world, or a non-U.S. resident or Expat plan holder traveling outside your home country, and you are admitted to a hospital for a serious or critical injury or illness and you are in need of a medical evacuation, Travel MedEvac has you covered.  We partner with Air Ambulance Worldwide who manages your medical evacuation utilizing a highly accredited global network of experienced air ambulance providers to bring you home.  We will not bid out your care or your family’s care to unaccredited air ambulance companies that do not meet the highest standards in care and safety.

Travel MedEvac is not a membership or assistance plan, but rather a fully compliant and regulated plan underwritten through top rated insurance carriers such as Nationwide and others to ensure your coverage is there when you need it.      

Travel MedEvac provides flexible plan options, including Daily, Annual, Extended-Stay, Expatriate, Mexico Only and Medical Tourism Plans for Individuals, Couples, Families and Groups. 

Wherever you may travel throughout the world a Travel MedEvac premium medical evacuation plan may be the single most important coverage you should obtain when traveling.
