MCA Travel Assistance

While Away from Home

Americans and Canadians will take hundreds of trips this year, across the country and around the world. You have the power of our assistance services to manage such unforeseen circumstances. This comprehensive program provides you with professional multilingual 24/7 emergency medical assistance services worldwide - including emergency evacuation and repatriation - services when ever you are traveling 100 miles or more away from your principal residence.  The following provides further details about your MCA assistance services.

Emergency Medical Evacuation:  If you sustain an injury or suffer an illness and medical care comparable to western medical standards is not available in your current location, we will arrange for and cover the cost of transportation for a medically supervised evacuation to the nearest medical facility we determine to be capable of providing such medical care.

Assisted Repatriation:  If you sustain an injury or suffer an illness and you are sufficiently recovered to travel in a non-scheduled commercial air flight or a regularly scheduled air flight with special equipment and/or personnel with minimal risk to your health, we will arrange for and cover the cost for the transport to your principal residence or the country where you are currently assigned.

Post-Recovery Repatriation:  If you sustain an injury or suffer an illness and you have sufficiently recovered to travel in a regularly scheduled economy class air flight without special equipment or personnel with minimal risk to your health, we will pay for the increase in cost to change travel date on the return air flight and/or for an upgrade in the seating, to your principal residence or the country where you are currently assigned.

Visit to Hospital:  If you sustain an injury or suffer an illness and you are expected to be hospitalized for more than seven consecutive days, we will arrange for and cover the cost of economy round-trip transportation for a person of your choice to visit you.

Return of Dependent Child(ren):  If your dependent child(ren), under age 19, is left unattended as a result of your injury or illness, we will coordinate and cover the cost of economy transportation for their travel to your residence or to the country where you are currently assigned.

Return of Companion:  If you are travelling with a companion and as a result of your injury or illness, you cannot complete the trip as scheduled, we will arrange for and cover the cost of lesser of the change fee for your companion's return flight or a one way economy class flight.
