When choosing an air ambulance & evacuation plan, the rate of plan coverage is reflective of time traveling in a foreign country, region of travel, and the ages of each member. There are two types of services: “regional assistance & evacuation” and “return home” evacuation.
A plan may be offered on a stand alone basis or offered with a full blown renewable twelve month global expatriate medical insurance plan. What are the differences you ask? We can explain.
Many air ambulance plans are not what they appear to be. Would you choose to be flown home or to a regional care center? How will your medical insurance plan communicate with your air ambluance partner? Do you have a medical plan back in your home country? Who will pay? Who will make the decision if you are flown home or to another hospital in foreign country? Planned departure or life threatening situation from an ICU bed in a hospital? Let’s talk this through.
Our Preferred Carrier for 2020-21: THE HCC ATLAS PLAN OPTIONS
Make sure your air ambulance service has the ability to work with your international medical plan, if not, you could be overcharged by thousands. It happens. You don’t need surprises after the fact. Call our team for answers. We are open for Skype consultations at no charge. Contact offshorehealthbenefits.com today!
Many times, the primary medical insurance in your home country offers little or no coverage for medical expenses incurred as you travel outside of your home country. Atlas Travel provides international coverage as well as important benefits like Emergency Medical Evacuation, Hospital Room and Board, and Crisis Response for kidnap and ransom situations abroad.

What’s Covered by Atlas Travel® ?
Would you know what to do if you found yourself in a life-threatening situation far from home? WorldTrips is experienced in arranging emergency medical evacuations. Atlas Travel will cover eligible expenses necessary to transport you from an initial treating facility to the nearest hospital qualified to treat your life-threatening condition. We also understand the importance of family support in these difficult situ- ations. Atlas Travel will also cover the transportation, lodging, and meal costs for a relative to join you after a covered emergency medical evacuation, up to the lifetime limit.
What would your family do if disaster strikes while you are away from home? The death of a loved one is never easy, no matter the circumstances. In the unfortunate event of your death while traveling abroad, Atlas Travel will arrange for and cover eligible costs associated with the repatriation of your remains.
If you are expected to be hospitalized for more than 36 hours due to a covered injury or illness and covered children under 18 years of age will be left unattended as a result, Atlas Travel will cover the eligible transportation cost for the children to return home.
In these turbulent times, the risk of a terrorist attack is a reality. If you are in the wrong place at the wrong time, and the country or region you’re visiting is NOT under a level 3 or level 4 travel advisory, Atlas Travel offers coverage for eligible medical expenses resulting from those acts. Coverage excludes countries or regions for which the U.S. Department of State has issued a level 3 (“reconsider travel”) or level 4 (“do not travel”) advisory in the 6 months prior to your arrival date.
If, during the coverage period and after your arrival, the U.S. Department of States issues a level 3 or level 4 travel advisory for your destination country, Atlas Travel will coordinate your alternate departure arrangements from that country and cover eligible associated costs.
Natural disasters can happen anywhere and at any time. If a natural disaster occurs on your trip, causing you to become displaced from your planned and paid accommodations, Atlas Travel will provide relief of a maximum of $250 a day for 5 days to help cover the costs of alternative accommodations.

Enrollment and Filing a Claim
HOME COUNTRY COVERAGE
For individuals with U.S. as home country, for every three-month period during which the member is covered hereunder, medical expenses incurred in the U.S. are covered up to a maxi- mum of 15 days.
For individuals with a home country other than the U.S., for every three- month period during which the member is covered hereunder, medical expenses incurred in the member’s home country are covered up to a maximum of 30 days.
Any benefit accrued under a single three-month period does not accumulate to another period. Failure of the member to continue his or her international trip or the member returning to their home country for the sole purpose of obtaining treatment for an illness or injury that began while traveling shall void any home country coverage provided under the terms of this agreement.
While the certificate is in effect, the benefit period does not apply. Upon termination of the certificate, underwriters will pay eligible medical expenses, as defined herein, for up to 90 days. This period begins on the first day of diagnosis or treatment of a cov- ered injury or illness incurred while the member was outside his or her home country and while the certificate was in effect. The benefit period applies only to eligible medical expenses related to the injury or illness that began while the certificate was in effect.

Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (“PPACA”): This insurance is not subject to, and does not provide certain insurance benefits required by, the United States’ Patient Protec- tion and Affordable Care Act (“PPACA”). PPACA requires certain US citizens or US residents to obtain PPACA compliant health insurance, or “minimum essential coverage.” PPACA also requires certain employers to offer PPACA com- pliant insurance coverage to their employees. Tax penalties may be imposed on U.S. residents or citizens who do not maintain minimum essential coverage, and on certain employers who do not offer PPACA compliant insurance coverage to their employees. In some cases, certain individ- uals may be deemed to have minimum essential coverage under PPACA even if their insurance coverage does not provide all of the benefits required by PPACA. You should consult your attorney or tax professional to determine whether this policy meets any obligations you may have under PPACA.
