Medjet Transport Stories and Testimonials


Travel insurance only goes so far. The question is, if you are hospitalized far from home, will it go far enough? Most kinds of travel insurance will only get you to the closest hospital. To get home, to your hospital, you need something more. You need MedjetAssist. If Mr Thanhauser had not been a Medjet member he would have had to stay in Johannesburg for rehabilitation instead of returning to his home hospital in New York.

Dr. Pamela McLain Aspen, CO to Birmingham, AL “I wanted so badly to be back at my home hospital.” I was trying to squeeze in one last ski run before sunset. The light was fading and the wind was kicking up the snow. It was getting more and more difficult to see. I hit a mogul that sent me spinning through the air. With every flip, I had just enough time to anticipate slamming into the ground again, as I tumbled 50 feet down the mountain. My leg shattered into 12 pieces.

In this case, the Medjet member who was transported was able to return to her home hospital in Portland. If she had relied on the medical evacuation component of most travel insurance and platinum card plan her medical journey would have stopped in Lima, Peru.

If this Medjet member had relied on the medical evacuation component of most travel insurance and platinum card plans his medical journey would have stopped at the closest adequate facility, which in this case would be, in Bangkok, Thailand.
