MEDICAL EVACUATION INFORMATION ON ATLAS INTERNATIONAL WITH SPORTS RIDER COVERAGE
- Yes, evacuation will be covered with the sports rider as long as the policyholder is not doing the sport professionally – no reward, wage or profit; and all other policy provisions are met.
- The Sports rider covers climbing, one of the sports covered, with or without ropes. Evacuation benefit remains unaffected.
- It is important to note that if the policyholder is first moved from the mountain by medical transportation, that is processed under the “Local Ambulance” benefit, and not the evacuation benefit. The Evacuation Benefit takes place when the member is at a medical facility that is not suitable to treat the policyholder’s medical condition and they must be evacuated to another facility that is suitable. That coordination will always take place between the provider and HCC, the insurance company that provides the Atlas International plan.
