Policies that include the benefit for Overseas Emergency Medical Assistance
, offer cover for your medical transfer or evacuation if you must be brought back to New Zealand.
In an emergency we advise that you, a member of your travelling party, or family member call our medical assistance team
as soon as possible. They will liaise with the treating hospital to provide written guarantees of payment where possible for reasonable expenses and to approve medical evacuation if you are covered and it’s deemed necessary.
If you have purchased Comprehensive
, Essentials, Medical Only, Frequent Traveller
or Already Overseas
, cover is available for your medical transfer or evacuation back to New Zealand with appropriate medical supervision if deemed necessary.
Cover is also available under these plans for the return to New Zealand of your dependants if they are left without supervision following your hospitalisation or evacuation.
All expenses for medical evacuation must first be approved by 1Cover.
