Your Plan In Action
Should a medical emergency derail your travel, EA+ has you covered no matter where you are. This is how it works.
As a card-carrying member, you can breathe easy knowing that Emergency Assistance Plus—and all of its services—accompanies you wherever you go. Of course, that means you’re well protected should the unforeseen occur while you’re overseas; but those same services are applicable even when you’re taking a quick weekend getaway within the United States. In other words, if you or any plan-covered family member are hospitalized while traveling anywhere in the world, the EA+ team of dedicated specialists will be at the ready to make sure you’re well-cared for and that you get home safe.
Should a medical emergency occur, it’s imperative that you first call 911 or seek medical attention immediately. (EA+ will always be there for you, but it does not act as a first responder. Additionally, most EA+ services only take effect after you or your family member have been admitted to the hospital.*) Once you’re admitted, here’s what happens next:
*Visiting the Emergency Room does not qualify as being admitted.
The services outlined above represent the services of an EA+ Essential membership. You may be eligible for additional services, should you enroll in the EA+ Premier plan.

“My husband became very ill in Monument Valley and was airlifted to New Mexico where he was hospitalized for 10 days. During his hospitalization EA+ reviewed his condition, made all flight plans for our travel home, and provided transportation to and from the airports. Most importantly, EA+ provided an experienced (and wonderful!) nurse escort to accompany my husband home. I cannot adequately express how reassuring it was to have the EA+ nurse caring for my husband during our journey home. She monitored his vitals and transported the IV medication he required for the first 48 hours at home. We will NEVER travel without EA+ again.”
