  1. I already have medical insurance. Why should I activate EA+, too?
    EA+ is NOT medical insurance. It's an important stop-gap between what your medical plan covers... and emergency expenses most health insurance plans NEVER pay. EA+ picks up the tab for emergency helicopter or ambulance evacuation. It steps forward with extra cash to ensure your medical care can continue while the administrators sort out health insurance details. It pays for medical experts to oversee your treatment and even helps your loved ones stay "in the loop" with a 24-hour toll-free emergency message relay service.

    Your official EA+ Identification Card will be mailed to you in your Welcome Packet as soon as you complete your enrollment. This customized I.D. lists the toll-free hotline. (You'll want to keep this I.D. in your wallet. Most people tuck it right next to their medical plan I.D. card.)

    Then if you're suddenly faced with an emergency, just call the toll-free hotline which is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. EA+ will immediately jump in from there.

    This is determined on a case by case basis, depending on the location and the patient's specific condition. The member will only be moved to another hospital when care at the first hospital is not adequate or following this initial evacuation, when the patient is stable enough for transportation home. EA+'s medical director will make the determination after reviewing medical reports and possible consultation with the treating physician.

    back to questions

Children must be primarily dependent on the member for support and maintenance and must live in a parent-child relationship with the member.

    back to questions

  10. If my whole family is caught in a travel emergency, are you able to provide evacuation service for all of us?
    If a family membership was purchased and if the whole family medically requires transportation from an inadequate to an adequate facility, this service will be covered.

    back to questions

    back to questions

  12. What if I have my kids or grandkids traveling with me, will they be cared for?
    Yes, if you are traveling with your kids or grandkids and you can't continue the trip, and the kids would be left alone, EA+ will pay to send them home. If need be, EA+ will also provide a qualified escort to see they get home safely.

    back to questions

  13. What about my vehicle, will it be left stranded if I am flown home?

An Example of How EA+ Works

Donald and his wife Sharon were off to see their grandkids. Like most grandparents, they were thrilled to see their grandkids grow up. To see them develop their personalities, and interests. To listen to their stories. And, in turn, to see them listen, wide-eyed, to stories the "grown-ups" had to tell.

But alas, like for many grandparents today, the kids weren't close by. For Donald and Sharon it was a drive of 850 miles from their home in Sarasota, Florida. So, it was a couple of days on the road, there and back. But they didn't mind. The journey was pleasant enough. They took their time. And the prize at the end of it - time with the grandkids - made it all worthwhile.

They stopped for their first night at their favorite inn in Kennesaw, Georgia. At breakfast the next morning, Donald was feeling a little light-headed. He figured it was due to the upcoming excitement of seeing the grandkids. But then he began to feel some pain in his left arm. And then more pain in the center of his chest.

Sharon realized at once what was happening. Donald was having a heart attack! Sharon called 9-1-1. Within 15 minutes Donald was in an ambulance racing to the local hospital. Donald made it okay and was placed in Intensive Care. And then Sharon sat down in the Waiting Room... and thought, "Now what?"

But, luckily, Sharon didn't have to think too long. She and Donald had recently, signed up for "Emergency Assistance Plus" (EA+). And this proved to be their savior this day!

You'll understand what EA+ does when you see what happened next.

Sharon called EA+ toll-free to explain the emergency. EA+ immediately took over on Donald and Sharon's behalf. EA+'s medical experts spoke with the heart specialist at the hospital. They discussed Donald's condition and treatment and acted as a "second opinion" just to be sure Donald was getting proper care. By now Donald was stabilized and out of danger. But the trip was over. It was agreed that Donald still needed specialized care which the hospital in Kennesaw couldn't provide. So it would be best for him to return home to Florida as soon as possible. But how?

It wasn't safe to let Donald drive; and Sharon wasn't able to. So EA+ promptly arranged a flight home for both Donald and Sharon. EA+ helped Donald get from the hospital to the plane; and from the plane to Donald's local hospital in Sarasota.

EA+ took care of everything - even the stranded car. EA+ sent an experienced driver to pick it up at the inn in Kennesaw, then drive it (carefully!) the 533 miles back to Donald and Sharon's home in Sarasota.

All this was done at NO CHARGE to Donald and Sharon. EA+ paid for everything - the medical supervision by EA+'s medical experts, Donald and Sharon's tickets home and the return of the car.

What could have been a nightmare for Donald and Sharon turned, instead, into just an inconvenience. With EA+'s help, Donald and Sharon were free to focus on Donald's recovery and NOT on the costs, or even the phone calls and planning, to pull this off.

EA+ did it all.
