This is a “Medical Evacuation and Repatriation” membership program, which we are able to offer you, and around 100,000 other GEOS members, at very low rates with savings of up to 80% compared to other programs providing a similar benefit.
This is a prepaid private Medical Evacuation membership program. Please note that this is not an insurance plan, travel insurance policy or a healthcare plan and, therefore, GEOS will not reimburse members for expenses they incur on their own.
Up to $1,000,000 of Medical Evacuation Benefits
What are the benefits:
One of the most attractive features of this special GEOS program is that it provides coverage for the cost of repatriating you to a hospital near your home from anywhere in the USA or Canada (if you have chosen the North American option) or anywhere in the world (if you are an international member), avoiding a possibly long stay in a hospital many miles from your family and friends. The upgrade covering international travel throughout the world is available at very little additional cost and you are entitled to use this valuable service from the moment you are just 99 miles or more away from home!
THE GEOS DIFFERENCE – UNBEATABLE BENEFITS AT AN UNBEATABLE PRICE As a GEOS MEDIVAC member, emergency evacuation will be provided if you need to be hospitalized while you are 99 miles or more away from your permanent residence. GEOS will ensure and provide you with Medical Evacuation from the nearest medical facility and repatriation to the hospital of YOUR choice in a medically-equipped and staffed aircraft. The amounts of benefit covered are specified in the scale of benefits in the Benefits Sections “A” through “C” below.
Our service is one of the most comprehensive services available, at a fraction of the price of other MEDIVAC plans. We will look after you from the moment you arrive at the nearest hospital required to stabilize your condition and throughout the medical evacuation to the final hospital of your choice. We even cover the cost of any emergency treatment required to stabilize your condition so that you may then be safely medically evacuated to your final hospital of choice.
Air ambulance − equipped and designed to cater for medical emergencies, always accompanied by doctors or nurses..
Road Ambulance − used frequently to transport a patient to and from a commercial airfield, or hospital, also used to meet flights and transport patients to the receiving hospital following a repatriation or evacuation.
Commercial flight − every airline has its own requirements before allowing a patient to travel. Our liaison and forward planning with the airline is required to ensure that seat configurations will allow for a patient to travel comfortably and safely whether or not accompanied by a medical escort. Some commercial airlines do allow stretchers to be transported.
Helicopters − may be used when a medical aircraft cannot access an area or a road ambulance cannot travel.
Train and taxi − for short distances to ensure a patient journey is completed to their required destination.
GEOS MEDIVAC Members are offered this service to ensure our member gets to a hospital near home safely. We arrange all tickets and itineraries, to ensure the traveller is fully briefed and has a trouble-free journey.
Please note that the provision of this service is subject to the geo-political status of the country at the time the assistance is required. Information on restricted or excluded countries and up-to-date alerts can be found on the IERCC Country Alerts Page by clicking here.
