Global Underwriters’ International Expat Benefit solutions are designed to make the process easy, efficient and seamless.

Emergency Medical Air Evacuation is one of the most important benefits included as part of any multinational benefit plan. Many group health plans do not adequately pay for Medical Evacuations if you are out of network, traveling or on assignment abroad, and virtually none of them will make the necessary arrangements to coordinate and pay for the actual evacuation.
Emergency Medical Air Evacuation is necessary for critical medical conditions that need immediate attention or transportation from the point of injury (whether it’s a remote location or away from a densely populated area) to an adequate medical facility. That’s why it’s so important to have a policy that responds immediately to these types of emergency situations. Communication and coordination between the insured, medical team, medical facility, employer (if necessary) and the assistance company are critical to the success of any Emergency Medical Evacuation or Repatriation scenario.
Language barriers, unfamiliar cultures and scarcity of quality health care facilities and providers can cause anxiety to anyone residing or traveling overseas. When a crisis or an emergency situation presents itself, it’s nice to know that one call does it all as far as getting you immediate assistance anywhere in the world. Highly experienced U.S. certified medical staff and doctors are always prepared to provide prompt, efficient and seamless professional service.
