Sky Med

Today we had a presentation from Sky Med.

Sky Med provides insurance for travelers who might need ambulance or helicopter service in an emergency plus a number of other benefits. They operate world wide but we only have coverage for North America.

The insurance covers you whether you're in your RV or not.

I bought it because it provides 'mental' security for Ginny. If I were to have a heart attack or accident our side they would pay to bring me to a hospital either by ambulance or helicopter and fly me and Ginny home in a medical plane. As well they would drive my RV home. There are no deductibles. You call 911. Get the help you need, call Sky Med and they pay the bills.

Like all Insurance I hope to never need it.

When we took a trip from Virginia to Yellowstone - Denver and back, I did the same thing. It is not that expensive and it can be purchased from multiple sources.

I know one of the pilots that does the life flights, He's a strongly advocates having it. He was a Army Blackhawk pilot before retiring.
I can really agree with having supplemental coverage. My red light "Taxi" cost me $1200 for a 7 1/2 mile ride even with Blue Cross insurance and I'm paying for the highest coverage. The medical bills hurt worse than cutting toe off.

If you get AAA's "Premier RV level" of membership you get medevac as part of the deal. Not bad considering you get a bunch of other stuff, too.

15 minutes with Geico could have saved you 15%. Just kidding, I hadn't even thought of travel insurance. We have the regular health insurance from work, but it doesn't cover transportation. I'm going to look into it.

Allstate auto insurance has medvac coverage, check you policy before acquiring duplicate.
Never in doubt, often wrong

Not the same thing but Mom and another older lady bought some kind of travel health insurance on a trip to Italy many years ago. The other lady had a heart attack and spent several days in an Italian hospital and it also paid for a traveling Doctor to fly with them all the way back to Florida. No telling what all the bill would have been not to mention the paperwork.

Interestingly, the hospital did not provide meals. Mom said the family of the injured of sick were expected to brings meals to the hospital. Mom had to do the best she could from local eaterys.
