Medjet Assist (U.S. and Canadian members)
Medjet provides single point coordination for the safety and protection of individuals and family members as they travel for personal or business reasons – domestically and abroad. MedjetAssist and MedjetHorizon memberships are both available to SATW members. The Medjet air medical transport membership program eliminates all costs beyond the membership fee in medically transporting a member back to a home country hospital of their choice in time of need. Parties must maintain an active residence address in the USA, Canada or Mexico. MedjetHorizon members have all the air medical transport benefits of MedjetAssist, plus added travel security and crisis response services benefits. And unlike other global transport and travel security membership programs, MedjetHorizon does not depend on hard triggers, like government-issued evacuation mandates to act on behalf of members.

 

For reduced annual and multi-year rates for SATW members, learn more and enroll by visiting www.Medjet.com/SATW. Or call Medjet at 800-527-7478. Refer to SATW when calling. MEDJET MUST RECEIVE MEMBERSHIP ENROLLMENT DATA AND PAYMENT IN ADVANCE OF TRAVEL. MedjetAssist annual rates for SATW are $205 for an individual or $280 for a family, under age 75 (vs the company’s baseline rates of $295/$399) so they remain highly-reduced for our members. Members age 75 and over are $315 per year compared to the company’s baseline rate of $450. Short-term rates are available but annual coverage is certainly recommended. MedjetHorizon costs an additional $149 for an individual (including over age 75) and $179 for a family per year as an add on to MedjetAssist. If you already have a MedjetAssist policy, call them for a pro-rated amount to add MedjetHorizon.
