Medjet MedjetAssist Short Term

The MedjetAssist Short-Term Membership is ideal for individuals and families who are taking a short trip and want to purchase air-medical transport coverage on a trip by trip basis. This membership covers trips up to 30 days in length when you are traveling more than 150 miles from home (8, 15, 21 and 30-day options are available).

Whether you are traveling across the country or to an exotic international destination, this membership will give you peace of mind while traveling. If you need to be transported, Medjet will arrange and pay for air-medical transport back to your hospital of choice, via air ambulance or medical escort on a commercial airline. There are no claim forms, caps on coverage or hidden additional fees. All you pay is your initial membership fee.

Benefits begin at 12:01AM morning of the effective date and expire at midnight (CDT) of the expiration date, and your membership must be activated prior to departure from your primary residence address.

This membership is offered in individual, family and group coverage. A family membership protects the primary member, their domestic spouse or partner and up to five unmarried dependent children under age 19 (or under age 23, if a full-time student). The MedjetAssist Short-Term Membership is available for residents of the U.S., Canada or Mexico age 74 and under. For travelers age 75 to 84, please call us at 1-800-487-4722 for the MedjetAssist Diamond Membership.

piece of mind was the most important thing. I did not have to use the policy. Would like to get feedback from people that used the service.

Seemed a bit pricey but then again, since we did not need the policy, by definition insurance seems unnecessary (until you need it).

No one will probably ever read this review because the company obviously "curates" the reviews. If they are like may sites that self-publish reviews it is possible that fake reviews have been posted. Just ask yourself the question: Why would anyone write a review for one-time insurance they never used? Makes no sense. Some sites give you the option of showing the reviews with claims and they are rarely five stars. Also, you may buy the policy from John Hancock which has a great reputation but the claims are actually processed by some company you've never heard in the midwest, like Seven Corners (check them on Yelp). So it is actually impossible to read see reviews for the company that actually processes the claims. Once you have made a claim and obtain the name of the claims processor if you go to Yelp and find an overall 1 Star rating and hundreds of horror stories about the claims process. In my experience claim will take 2 to 3 months if you're lucky and possibly never if they invoke the numerous loopholes in these policies. Then you have another layer of websites like this one that publish "ratings" for companies they represent and articles from Forbes and other sources they pay for the media"reviews". Notice they are all five stars. Finally, you have google who is only going to display positive reviews and information provided by their paying customers, the insurance agent, insurance companies and the hidden companies that you actually deal with if you have a claim. Also note that although you can post a review for your local insurance agent on google there is no option of posting an unedited review for this site, John Hancock or other insurance companies on google, interesting... Hopefully, the people that review these reviews will find this one worthy. However, I suspect they will be laughing with their workmates as they hit the delete button!
