We are absolutely thrilled to announce our partnership with Medjet. There is an old saying: "Hope for the best, plan for the worst." Medjet is an annual subscription product that absolutely embodies that philosophy. In a moment of crisis; or a moment that very well might be the most dangerous or life-threatening moment of your life, you absolutely need Medjet.
MedJet offers two products: MedjetAssist and MedjetHorizon. Each will be explained below.
Medjet Assist is the base product that Medjet offers. Once enrolled; if you are ever admitted to a hospital 150 miles or more from your home, Medjet will coordinate and pay for your medical transportation to the hospital of your choice. You may already have travel insurance, but you would be surprised to know that most traverl insurance companies only pay to send you to "nearest acceptable facility." That's where Medjet membership comes in.
For example: You may be in Cozumel and break a leg while hiking or ATV riding. The nearest acceptable facility may be in Cozumel or on the mainland of Mexico. If your leg requires surgery; do you want that surgery there or would you rather be stabilized and flown home, near your friends and family, for surgery? With MedjetAssist, other than your annual membership cost, you pay nothing for your medical transportation; which could cost anywhere between $30,000.00 and $180,000.00 USD.
What if it is your child that is injured? Do you want their complex medical care or surgery take place wherever you may be or do you want to take them home or to a world class facility like Texas Children's Hospital, Mayo Clinic or any of the many others back in the US?
MedjetHorizon offers all of the services of MedjetAssist and so much more. MedjetHorizon covers ground transportation to a specialty hospital within 150 miles of your home. MedjetHorizon also adds invaluable features such as itinerary & destination safety information, as well as security and crisis response benefits.
If, for example, while traveling you find yourself in a city that erupts in rioting, civil unrest or a terrorist attack you have someone to call for help. Unlike other global transport and travel security membership programs, MedjetHorizon does not depend on
hard triggers, like government-issued evacuation mandates in order to act on behalf of its members.
In the world today this service may save the lives of you and your family or traveling companions.

“Medjet does the best job for one very important reason. The fine-print disclaimers that you’ll find in other policies are virtually eliminated ... I strongly advise you to consider this.”

“I discovered Medjet a few years ago and have purchased a membership every year.”
Jena Gardner, President-JG Black Book of Travel
“Medjet is a no-brainer as far as I’m concerned. Travel is my business; I travel almost constantly and I wouldn’t go on a trip without them. I’ve seen Medjet in action and it’s like having family take care of you.”
