What’s the price of peace of mind?
This is a very real question when you travel as often as I do. I’m sent to far-flung
destinations for a living, and while I travel well and I travel as safe as I can, now and
again I find myself wondering how I’d react in a real emergency; what would I do if
a grizzly bear mistook my melon for a honeypot while trekking through Alberta’s
remote wilderness? How would I get home if I were stung on the face by a snake in
the red center of Australia? How would I get emergency care if a raging bull did a
number on my questionable bits while running through the streets of Pamplona?
These are the questions that trouble my simple mind.
Enter MedjetAssist and what amounts to the world’s greatest peace of mind
program for travelers. A global air medical transport membership program,
MedjetAssist offers members medical transport services in the event of an
emergency – and allows members to choose exactly which hospital they’d like to be
delivered to in their home country. So if you’re particularly fond of a nurse on the
third floor of your home hospital’s trauma wing, or you feel quite attached to the
transesophageal echocardiogram equipment in your local cardiologist’s office, you
can have your cake, and eat it too.
I would never think of leaving home without comprehensive insurance on my
photography equipment, so it only makes sense that I have spectacular protection
for the gear that really counts. MedjetAssist is the perfect program for me because it
allows me to go at my work – and my travels – without making compromises based
on what could be suspect local medical care and conditions. With MedjetAssist, my
own hometown care is never more than a phone call away, and I like that.
Program membership comes with additional benefits. I have access to Travel,
Health & Security Precautions for International Destinations, Visa, Passport &
Immunization Requirements, telephone interpretation and medical referrals.
MedjetAssist is a comprehensive medical transport membership program in
an affordable package – and a small price to pay for peace of mind. Short-Term
memberships start at $99 and $260 for annual.
