How does Emergency Evacuation Coverage work?
Let’s say that you are on vacation to a very beautiful country which may not have first world standards of healthcare or infrastructure. In the event that you suffered a medical emergency you would be taken to a local hospital which, depending on you condition, may not be able to provide the care you need.
If the local hospital is unable to provide the necessary treatment then your emergency evacuation coverage will help to transport you to a medical facility which can provide the required care.
In some cases this medical evacuation could be to a superior hospital in the country you’re in, in others you could be transported to a neighboring country, and still in others you could even be repatriated back to your home country.
Where you go, and how you are evacuated, will depend on the severity of your condition and the healthcare you require and the exact conditions of your global health insurance policy. But Emergency Evacuation insurance coverage means that you will get the care you need, even if you have to take a flight to get there.
