Included, and available as an optional upgrade
This benefit is included in Worldwide Trip Protector and Worldwide Trip Protector Edge. The Edge plan also offers this benefit as an optional upgrade, which will add on to the maximum benefit amount that is already included.
This benefit includes three types of coverage:
Emergency Medical Evacuation
We will pay for the Usual and Customary transportation expenses for an Emergency Medical Evacuation, to the nearest suitable Hospital or medical facility where Medically Necessary treatment is available to treat an Unforeseen Sickness or Injury provided:
- the local attending Physician and Our designated Travel Assistance Services Provider determine that Your condition is acute, severe or life threating; and
- that adequate Medically Necessary treatment is not available in Your immediate area.
Following an Emergency Medical Evacuation or a covered Injury or Sickness, We will pay for Medical Evacuation expenses to return You to Your point of origin, Your Primary Residence, or to a Hospital or medical facility closest to Your Primary Residence capable of providing continued treatment, if Your local attending Physician and Our designated Travel Assistance Services Provider determine that it is Medically Necessary.
Repatriation of Remains
Benefits will be paid for covered Repatriation Expenses incurred to return Your body to Your city of Primary Residence or Your origination point or to the place of burial in the United States of America if You die during Your Trip.
