Some good friends of ours were on the island of Hawaii on vacation. Our friend had a heart attack, he was air lifted to Honolulu general. None of the costs for his evacuation were covered by their insurance. They had good insurance. Their bill was over $20,000.00 for the air ambulance. If they had purchased a medical evacuation insurance plan like Global Rescue it would have been covered. You can be in the USA on vacation or on business or in the far flung reaches of the globe, evacuation insurance will get you to the medical care you deserve, be it near where your accident took place or back home with your favorite doctor and near loved ones.
Sky Rescue is similar, but adds on some scheduled medical benefits. It can be taken for 3, 6, 9 or 12 months. I would recommend it to the adventure enthusiast that is looking for a budget plan that will cover an evacuation. It does not cover any in-country evacuations, but it is available to anyone in the world.
