With pandemic restrictions beginning to lift, and optional vaccinations, the doors to travel are opening, whether that’s by plane, train, or automobile. However, people may continue to be hesitant to travel due to the health risks, which is where Emergent Assist steps in to help.

Four Emergency Travel Benefits, One Membership

Emergent Assist includes the following benefits:

  • Helicopter Emergency
  • Travel Assistance Program
  • AirMed
  • ICE Tracer

There are two membership options to cover all persons in the home. Emergent Assist covers up to three members while Emergent Assist Plus covers up to 10.

Helicopter Emergency

Emergency medical transportation by helicopter in the event of a Certified Injury.

In the event an eligible member suffers from a Certified Injury resulting from an accident that requires Emergency Medical Transportation by helicopter in accordance with local EMS protocols, the program will reimburse the Insured or Provider up to a maximum of $7,000.00 with no deductible per occurrence.

This coverage is available worldwide for dependents at least 14 days of age and under 18. If helicopter transportation is required due to a life-threatening emergency or deemed medically necessary, reimbursement includes expenses incurred from the helicopter transportation from the scene of an accident to the nearest medical facility capable of treating the injuries, or helicopter transportation from one medical facility to another medical facility.

Travel Assistance Program

Assistance with emergency evacuation and medically necessary repatriation.

Through the Travel Assistance Program, when traveling more than one hundred (100) miles from permanent place of Residence, with a trip duration of ninety (90) consecutive days or less, benefits are available if an accidental illness or sickness commences during the covered trip. Members receive Evacuation and Repatriation coverage combined up to $100,000.

Emergency Evacuation

In the event of an accidental injury or sickness requiring medical assistance not otherwise available, the designated company will help to arrange an emergency medical evacuation to the nearest facility capable of providing adequate care.
