"Crisis Assistance Plus as a membership option for Medjet travelers now gives our members the additional peace of mind against political and security safety hazards while away from home," said Roy Berger, President and CEO of MedjetAssist.
Birmingham, AL (PRWEB) April 16, 2015
MedjetAssist, the premier global air medical transport membership for travelers, announced they have teamed up with Crisis Assistance Plus™ (CAP) powered by FocusPoint International, Inc. MedjetAssist provides medical repatriation services virtually anywhere in the world to members who may be hospitalized while traveling. CAP assists members whose travel may be impacted by security or political threats. Together, the two programs provide a comprehensive package to both corporate and leisure travelers.
“Medjet’s partnership with FocusPoint International is a marrying of two companies that are top-of-class in each of our respective fields,” said Roy Berger, President and CEO of MedjetAssist. “Crisis Assistance Plus as a membership option for Medjet travelers now gives our members the additional peace of mind against political and security safety hazards while away from home.”
“Partnering with MedjetAssist significantly enhances our crisis assistance membership program,” said Greg Pearson, President and CEO of FocusPoint International. “The ability to seamlessly integrate Medjet’s air medical transport service into the security and political evacuation component of our crisis assistance program made perfect sense. The fact that we both offer a fully funded membership, not an access program or an insured product, underpins our commitment to offer a world class travel assistance solution that far exceeds anything currently available in the market.”
As a Medjet member, travelers have peace of mind knowing that should they become hospitalized more than 150 miles from home virtually anywhere in the world, Medjet will make arrangements for air medical transport to the member’s home-country hospital of choice. There is no additional cost to the member and there are no health restrictions. Members also have access to medical and legal referrals, interpretation services, and immunization, visa, and passport assistance.
Similarly, if a CAP member is affected by a crisis event while traveling more than 150 miles from home anywhere in the world, the member will receive, at no additional cost, crisis consultation through FocusPoint’s 24/7 Crisis Response Center (CRC) and coordinated response services to resolve the situation. Covered events include terrorism, criminal violence, hijacking, wrongful detention, extortion, kidnap for ransom, the threat of political violence, and blackmail. Additional benefits include medical, dental, and legal referrals, interpretation services, visa and passport recovery and assistance, and GPS traveler tracking (opt-in benefit offered at an additional cost).
MedjetAssist is the premier global air medical transport membership program for travelers. If a member is hospitalized more than 150 miles from home—virtually anywhere in the world—MedjetAssist reviews his or her condition with the attending medical staff and arranges air medical transportation to the hospital of their choice in their home country. MedjetAssist has its corporate headquarters in Birmingham, Ala., and is the exclusive provider of worldwide air ambulance and medical transfer services for AARP.
