for Emergency Air Transportation
Do You Have $20,000 USD to Get Your Loved One Off the Island During an Emergency?
People in the Caribbean have a much higher risk of receiving excessive bills during an emergency. If you or a loved one becomes ill or is involved in an emergency, you will need to be taken to a medical center capable of providing high-level care. Unfortunately, the Caribbean is not known for it’s high-level medical facilities. So, when accidents strike, many patients will need to be flown to the United States, Puerto Rico or another territory to receive the appropriate care. MASA Assist protects you from these excessive costs and carefully guides you to a hospital capable of care.

Fully Cover International Transport
Throughout the Caribbean, there are only two types of insurance plans, private and public. Some cover a very small percentage of air ambulance costs, while others may not cover anything at all. This can be extremely dangerous, especially when emergency strikes.
