When scouting for locations in the U.S., Canada or Mexico, Medjet is an available membership service to consider while on location in these countries should there be a COVID-19 outbreak or should someone become ill. Medjet is a membership service to consider for your cast and crew. Medjet is the industry leader in air medical transport and travel security memberships. It’s one of the only companies that covers the cost of getting a sick or injured traveler all the way home from anywhere in the world. With Medjet, a medical transfer if injury or illness occurs is available if you’re more than 150 miles from home, which covers both domestic or international productions. Anticipating health concerns amidst a pandemic and global change is surely on any team's mind, which is why I'm flagging Medjet here for any upcoming productions that may need assurance against such uncertainty.
Unlike travel insurance or credit card medical evacuation benefits, which typically transport only to the “nearest acceptable facility,” a Medjet Member is allowed to transfer to their home hospital of choice, regardless of medical necessity, for only the cost of the membership. Medical transport costs typically range from $30,000 to over $180,000 and Medjet is an extremely affordable option (starting at $99).
