If you're hospitalized more than 150 miles from home, MedjetAssist will arrange air-medical transport to the hospital of your choice in your home country. As a Medjet member all you pay is the membership fee.
That's the power of Medjet.
Whether it's a trip overseas or visiting family in the States - pack the Medjet card! For business or personal travel - in the U.S. or abroad - Medjet can protect you and your family.
To take advantage of this benefit, the UAB National Alumni Society offers its members reduced annual Medjet rates starting at $250 (normally $270). Don't leave on your next trip without Medjet.
