Medical emergency/evacuation services
No one likes to think about medical emergencies, but they DO happen. With Aetna International by your side, you don't have to worry. If you must be transported because the proper medical attention you need isn't available where you are, you'll have our support every step of the way.
We have established partnerships with some of the world's most trusted medical evacuation, air ambulance, emergency travel assistance and security service providers. In collaboration with these partners, we coordinate medically necessary evacuations and arrange for transportation to facilities best equipped to handle specific emergency situations.
These services require pre-approval, so it's important to contact us early to make sure your coverage is approved.
