Almost all international health insurance plans provide medical evacuation coverage. You can view a list of these plans on the medical evacuation insurance page.
How much medical evacuation coverage is necessary? This depends on the locale of your international workers. If Americans staff your agency and all are working in Mexico, $25,000 of medical evacuation coverage should be adequate. On the other hand, if you have workers in Central Africa or Papua New Guinea, it would be wise to have a plan that provides $100,000 in coverage.
On the average, international health insurance companies charge $12-$15 a month for medical evacuation coverage. Obviously, you will pay more for $100,000 than you would for $25,000. You can avoid over-insuring in this area by always considering the countries where your employees are working when purchasing medical evacuation coverage.
