InsureMyTrip to Offer Medical Evacuation Coverage

Online travel insurance aggregator
introduces a new product category to its comprehensive site; Medical Evacuation Coverage.

With this, InsureMyTrip welcomes MEDJET Assistance, one of the leading providers of medical evacuation coverage to help launch this new initiative. The expansion into the stand alone medical evacuation segment and addition of MEDJET Assistance clearly demonstrates InsureMyTrip`s commitment and dedication to providing the traveling consumer with the most up to date products and service available within the marketplace.

Since issuing its first membership in 1991, Birmingham, Alabama based MEDJET Assistance has grown to a true industry leader within the medical evacuation field, with over 50,000 members and growing. MEDJET is an annual membership program providing air medical transportation to its members should they become hospitalized due to accident or illness, virtually anywhere in the world. MEDJET Assistance annual membership also includes domestic protection anywhere over 150 miles from home, making it truly unique in the marketplace.
“When you are traveling, one of the last things many think about is getting injured or sick. Getting home to loved ones and, in many cases, appropriate care in this event, becomes paramount and is the very nature of our important service,” commented Phillip Morris, Executive Vice President of MEDJET Assistance. “Our worldwide service is unique in the fact that we allow our members to be transported to the hospital of their choice, regardless of medical necessity. We are most excited to be working with InsureMyTrip in this most beneficial service for the traveling public.”

“Over the past year, we have had an increasing number of inquiries from our clients asking for stand-alone Medical Evacuation coverage,” said Peter Evans, Executive Vice President of InsureMyTrip. “Although most trip cancellation policies provide some medical evacuation benefits, we found that many of our clients wanted a stand alone product to follow them in their travels providing greater overall coverage. MEDJET Assistance`s annual membership program accomplishes this for one low price. We are pleased and most fortunate to be working with MEDJET. Their experience and specialized service is second to none.”
