There are many ways EA+ helps protect you from medical mishaps. But to keep the price reasonable, there are some restrictions you should know about. For example, your trip must be for reasons other than medical. You're not covered if your trip is just for treatment at a distant clinic or hospital. Also, EA+ is not a substitute for your medical insurance. Your regular insurance pays for your medical care. EA+ provides for all the extra services described in these materials. These help ensure you get an accurate diagnosis and proper ongoing care. Plus, EA+ helps make sure you get home quickly and safely if need be. And because EA+ is a membership, there are no claims for reimbursement — we make all of the arrangements for you!
