These are known as “evacuation-only” plans (although some might include medical benefits or have a rider to cover medical benefits).
All our career world health insurance plans and all our short-term international travel health insurance plans provide international medical evacuation insurance. With these plans the insured is getting both international medical insurance coverage and also international medical emergency evacuation insurance coverage. If you are looking for international health insurance, then you will not need to request international medical evacuation insurance separately.
Even if you have medical insurance that will protect you overseas, emergency medical evacuation is still a serious concern to most travelers and international workers/volunteers, especially when located in an area with inadequate medical care or if not SPECIFICALLY addressed or included as a benefit with your current coverage.
While some people may have medical coverage when traveling overseas outside their home country or network, very few plans have the proper coverage that includes emergency medical evacuation (unless you are buying/have international health insurance. The travel evacuation insurance plans on this page will give you the added protection and peace of mind that you are taken care of for this and other exclusive benefits like political evacuation return of mortal remains and many other benefits your home country coverage does not include for your trips and travels overseas.
