Travel Assistance FAQs

A: Travel Assistance includes many types of emergency and non-emergency medical and non-medical services. Specially trained multilingual representatives help travelers 24/7. The services they provide can range from something as simple as help finding a doctor to arranging a complex emergency medical evacuation. For medical emergencies, On Call International uses nurses and physicians to connect with the local medical team and help coordinate care.

Additionally, coverage does not provide options for quality health care providers outside of the United States. This issue is solved with our large non-U.S. provider network, which consists of quality doctors and hospitals throughout the world.
