Global travelers need to properly protect themselves against major financial exposure due to catastrophic medical events. That is one of the main reasons, if not the only reason, to have any type of insurance. Insurance of any sort allows for the risk to be spread and thus keeping you, the policyholder from holding the full bill in case of a disaster of any sort. Insurance comes in many forms and sizes. Here in this blog article we are talking about international medical insurance. Over the last 20 years in business, Good Neighbor Insurance has helped many clients here in the U.S. and overseas from losing house and home by insuring their trips / overseas travels with top notch international medical insurance benefits. If comprehensive travel medical benefits and assistance services are not secured before you travel, you could find yourself exposed to huge losses. Medical care can strike at any time, when severe incidents occur overseas, lack of proper coverage can leave you the traveler with steep medical bills for less than sufficient care.
Medical evacuation is one of the best medical benefits of any international medical insurance benefit. We take this benefit for granted here in the U.S. with a fabulous ambulance/air ambulance system. With a 911 call in the U.S. we can have some form of medical evacuation process in place in minutes sending us to the nearest and best medical facility. However, when overseas, it is quite different in most of the rest of the world.
International insurance companies, like the GeoBlue overseas medical insurance company handles all needed medical evacuations. The ky to all of this is for the policyholder / someone to start the process by calling the international insurance company. If one handles their own medical evacuation the international insurance will most probably not cover any of the cost. Use the experts, the international insurance companies, if medical evacuation is needed. Remember, your premium includes this vital overseas medical cover.
Here are a few things of many things an international medical insurance company decides when working on a medical evacuation.
- Evaluating the appropriateness of local health care providers
- Identifying the closest facility where a high level of care is available
- Determining the risk vs rewards of moving the patient
- Choosing the best method of transport (ie: ambulance, helicopter, fixed wing air ambulance)
- Securing the cooperation of the local treating physician, including a determination that the patient is stable enough to move
- Enlisting the most appropriate team to handle the transport (ie: doctor, nurses, therapist)
- Arranging for speedy and appropriate intake at the receiving facility
- Having someone on your side helping guide you through the whole process
