Not all medical facilities were created equal. Depending on the plan, Emergency Medical Evacuation insurance covers the cost of transporting a seriously injured or ill person to one of the following locations:
- The nearest adequate medical facility
- A hospital near home
- Or the hospital of his/her choice
Emergency Medical Evacuation insurance is usually included with both Travel Medical insurance plans and Trip Protection plans. However, unlike baggage insurance and trip cancellation insurance, it is also sold separately. Sufficient Emergency Medical Evacuation coverage is recommended, especially for long-distance trips abroad.
