MyAssist: Medical Emergencies

I have a medical emergency!

 

MyAssist helps customers overcome medical and travel issues every day. Here are a few tips and tricks to help you prepare in case you need medical assistance in Orlando … and beyond.

MyAssist Tip 1: Prior to traveling, consider speaking with your primary health insurance carrier to verify your eligibility terms at your destination. Are you covered internationally or out-of-network? If you don't have ample medical/emergency transportation coverage outside your network or outside the country, consider purchasing supplemental travel insurance.

MyAssist Tip 2: Include emergency contacts in your passport. Before you leave, make sure to completely and accurately fill out the emergency contact and information page in your passport.

MyAssist Tip 3: It's important to familiarize yourself with how to dial emergency lines from your destination. Domestically you would dial 911, but outside the U.S. these numbers vary. Remember, in addition to the number, you may have to dial a prefix to get an outside line from your hotel. MyAssist can easily provide you with this information and get you the help you need.
