Vessel at sea

Medical evacuation or repatriation from a vessel at sea is a serious and potentially life-saving procedure that involves transferring a person who is ill or injured from a ship or boat to a medical facility on land. This type of evacuation can be necessary in cases of serious illness or injury, where the patient requires immediate medical attention that cannot be provided on the vessel. While most standard medical insurance policies do not cover medical evacuation or repatriation from a vessel at sea, some specialty policies, such as those designed for crew members and seafarers, may include this benefit. It is important to be aware of the specific coverage provided by your policy and to understand any exclusions or limitations that may apply.
