Scottsdale, Arizona (PressExposure) April 12, 2008 -- Angel Medflight Worldwide Air Ambulance Services has announced the introduction of its Angel Care Travel Protection program, a medical evacuation plan that covers travelers who become injured or ill away from home.
Angel Care will send a medically equipped aircraft to pick up hospitalized travelers and transport them to the hospital of their choice. All flights are staffed with two pilots and a minimum of two medically trained personnel.
âTravel outside the U.S., Canada and Mexico is usually excluded from most standard health policies but Angel Careâs benefits are worldwideâ, says Jeremy Freer, company President and CEO.
Without Angel Care, domestic evacuations can cost as much as $20,000 while international transports can run $200,000. Annual Angel Care protection is available to individuals for $350 and $495 for families in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.
According to Freer, travel coverage can benefit students studying abroad, employees on business trips, residents living in foreign countries for up to a year, or anyone who is traveling more than 150 miles from home. Protection includes hospital to hospital ground and air transport.
Based in Scottsdale, AZ, Angel Care is a division of Angel Medflight Worldwide Air Ambulance Services which operates a fleet of fixed-wing, 100% medically dedicated aircraft with fully trained medical and flight personnel. It is the only air ambulance service in the country to offer ground ambulance transfers, whether in conjunction with or separate from air transports.
