Emergency Evacuation Insurance

An Emergency Evacuation coverage benefit is available with most of the medical insurance plans from China Health Insurance.

In the event that you experience a medical emergency, either through contracting a serious disease or suffering from a major accident, an Emergency Evacuation coverage benefit under a China medical insurance plan will ensure that you are able to be transported to a quality medical facility without having to pay for the costs of that transportation.

Typical Emergency Medical Evacuation scenarios can easily reach US$ 100,000 or more due to the fact that this type of transportation may include Air Fares, accompanying doctors, or even helicopter evacuation services if you are in a more remote part of the world.

For example, if you experience a major accident while trekking in Tibet – such as falling and breaking your leg on a remote mountain – getting to a hospital (or even a clinic) which will be able to provide assistance can be a challenge. Depending on your location the nearest facility which is able to help may be many hours away.

In this situation, and if your insurance policy offered an Emergency Evacuation coverage benefit, you could contact the insurer with your mobile phone and enlist their help to get you evacuated to the medical care which you need.

Emergency Medical Evacuation Coverage

An Emergency Medical Evacuation coverage benefit doesn’t even have to solely relate to excursions in remote parts of China.

In the event that you are admitted to a hospital for treatment and the hospital is unable to treat the condition, or provide a suitable standard of care, then a request can be made for an evacuation to the nearest “center of medical excellence” which is able to provide the necessary care.

Depending on the part of the world which you are located in this evacuation could mean that you are transported to another hospital within the same country or to another country entirely. Furthermore, many Emergency Evacuation coverage benefits will also include protection for Repatriation – enabling you to return to your home country for treatment if the situation necessitates it.

Unfortunately a policyholder cannot unilaterally request an emergency medical evacuation – the request must be approved, and agreed to, by both the insurance company and the attending medical professionals at the medical facility which you were admitted to. Ultimately, the decision to evacuate, or not to evacuate within a hospital setting will be based on medical necessity and whether or not the treating facility has the capability to care for your condition.

A final aspect of an Emergency Evacuation coverage benefit is the typical inclusion of coverage for the repatriation of the policyholder’s mortal remains. In the unfortunate event of a policyholder's death, the majority of emergency evacuation plans will cover the costs of transporting the policyholder's remains back to their home country. They will also arrange for such things as embalming and a zinc coffin. In many cases cremation will only be covered if it is a legal necessity.
