Medical Evacuation & Repatriation Coverage

Getting critically ill overseas or losing a loved one while traveling is extremely hard. However, losing a loved one when they are visiting a foreign country is even harder. Costs of medical evacuation and repatriation are extremely high. An experienced and effective team is needed to complete the transfer of the sick/injured or the remains to the required destination.

Evacuation insurance or repatriation insurance can help you with both. Medical Evacuation arranges to medically transport a patient to an appropriate medical facility. Repatriation coverage arranges for a patient to return home to receive care. Repatriation of Remains arranges for return of deceased remains back to the place of residence.
