Re: MedJet: Worth it?
Also check out DAN - Divers Alert Network. (just a coincidence) I've been a member for a long time and actually used the service about 11 years ago, getting from Miami to Tampa after a non SCUBA accident. Service is very inexpensive and they will get you home if your accident takes place more than 50 miles away from home.
The accident does not have to be SCUBA related.
If outside the USA, Canada, Puerto Rico, Bahamas, British or U.S. Virgin Islands, call +1-919-684-9111 collect.
When you join DAN, you are automatically enrolled in DAN's travel assistance plan and your family is covered with your family membership. If you travel at least 50 miles/80 km from your permanent residence, TravelAssist is there to help 24 hours a day. DAN TravelAssist arranges emergency medical evacuations for any medical emergency - and provides many more benefits - for you and your immediate family members.
IMPORTANT: DAN TravelAssist must arrange ALL evacuations. If you make your own emergency evacuation arrangements DAN TravelAssist will not reimburse the cost.
