How Much Do Medical Repatriations Cost?

How much do medical repatriations cost

Medical claims continue to top the number of claims recorded by Chubb in 2017 for Business Travel Insurance policies. While medical evacuations and repatriations form only a small percentage in comparison, their usually high cost may be covered by a group business travel insurance policy.

All businesses, small and large, have an obligation to look after their employees and mitigate the risks they face while at work, or traveling on business, or on secondment. When employees fall seriously ill or are badly injured on their business travels, a medical evacuation to the nearest centre of medical excellence or repatriation back to their home country for further treatment is often their best chance of a positive outcome. Chubb’s 24-hour assistance partners enable insured business travelers to travel with confidence knowing that help following a covered loss is just a phone call away.

Here are four recent cases to show how Chubb has delivered emergency assistance in various countries.
