Medical Evacuation

Medical Evacuation is the timely and efficient movement and en route care provided by medical personnel to wounded being evacuated from a battlefield, to injured patients being evacuated from the scene of an accident to receiving medical facilities, or to patients at a rural hospital requiring urgent care at a better-equipped facility using medically equipped ground vehicles (ambulances) or aircraft (air ambulances).

Examples include civilian EMS vehicles, civilian aeromedical helicopter services, and Army air ambulances. This term also covers the transfer of patients from the battlefield to a treatment facility or from one treatment facility to another by medical personnel, such as from a local hospital to a trauma center.

International Medical Evacuation

International Medical Evacuation provides coverage for reasonable transportation costs to the nearest centre of medical excellence in the event that the treatment is not available locally in an emergency. This option also includes repatriation coverage, allowing the benefi ciary to return to their country of habitual residence or country of nationality to be treated in a familiar location. It also includes compassionate visits for a parent, spouse, partner, sibling, or child to visit a beneficiary after an accident or sudden illness and the beneficiary has not been evacuated or repatriated.
