Schedule of Benefits

1. Emergency medical evacuation/repatriation
The plan will pay covered expenses incurred if any covered injury or illness that commences during the period of coverage results in the medically necessary emergency medical evacuation or repatriation (i.e., the member’s medical condition warrants immediate transportation from the medical facility where he or she is located to the nearest medical facility that is capable of furnishing the required level and type of care for the applicable illness or injury as determined by the attending physician in consultation with the Seven Corners medical director).

The maximum amount of this benefit is $500,000.

2. Emergency medical reunion
When emergency medical evacuation or repatriation is ordered and the attending physician recommends that a family member travel with the member, Seven Corners will provide transportation for one individual of the member’s choice to be at their side while they are hospitalized and then accompany them during their return to their permanent primary residence. Costs incurred for transportation and lodging are covered by the insurance policy. Approval and coordination of this benefit must be provided by the Seven Corners medical director in consultation with the attending physician to be considered a covered expense.

The maximum amount of this benefit is $50,000.

3. Return of mortal remains
A sensitive and valuable service that relieves the stress and confusion for families when transporting mortal remains across a country. Laws and regulations can differ, and Seven Corners will manage all logistics involved. The insurer will pay expenses incurred for preparation and return of a covered person’s body to his or her permanent primary residence if he or she dies. Approval and coordination of this benefit must be provided by Seven Corners to be considered a covered expense.

The maximum amount of this benefit is $50,000.

4. Return of dependents
Should the member be traveling alone with dependent(s) and become hospitalized and unable to take care of the dependent(s) and he or she is left unattended, the plan will arrange and pay for a one-way economy fare to the one location stipulated by the dependent’s legal guardian (including the cost of an attendant/escort, if necessary to insure the safety and welfare of dependents under the age of 19). Approval and coordination of this benefit must be provided by Seven Corners to be considered a covered expense.

The maximum amount of this benefit is $50,000.

5. Vehicle return (limited to trips in North America only)
Should the member, due to a medical condition, be unable to drive his/her vehicle back to his/her permanent primary residence within the United States, Mexico, or Canada, Seven Corners will arrange and pay to have a designated service return the vehicle to the member’s home, provided:

a) The member has been transported under either the “emergency medical evacuation/repatriation” or “return of mortal remains” benefits; and
b) no one in the member’s traveling party is capable of driving, or proficient and competent to drive, the member’s vehicle. The vehicle must be in good condition and capable of being safely driven on the highway in compliance with local laws.

The insurance plan will also cover the return of any additional vehicle that is legally hitched to their vehicle at the time of the “emergency medical evacuation/repatriation” or “return of mortal remains” to the destination of the pulling vehicle.

The member will be responsible for any costs incurred during the return of the vehicle to maintain the safe operation of the vehicle.

Alternatively, the member may choose to have his or her vehicle returned by a friend or family member. In such instance, and provided the return has been approved by Seven Corners and the vehicle is returned directly and expediently to the member’s permanent primary residence within the United States, Mexico, or Canada, Seven Corners will arrange and pay for transportation of that person to the location of the vehicle, and will also reimburse the member for gas and tolls during the return. In addition, the plan will provide a $100-per-day benefit, up to a maximum of five days for incidental expenses while driving. In no event shall the total expenses of a vehicle return exceed $5,000 for all expenses associated with the vehicle return.

Seven Corners must arrange and approve the vehicle return. If the member chooses to have a friend or family member perform the vehicle return, Seven Corners will not pay more than what it would have cost to have the company arrange the vehicle return.

The maximum amount of this benefit is $5,000.

6. Pet return
Should the member be traveling with his or her pet and become unable to care for it due to a medical emergency, Seven Corners will arrange for the return of the insured’s pet to his/her domicile.

The maximum amount of this benefit is $1,000.

7. Prescription medication and glasses replacement
If the member misplaces a medical prescription or damages eyeglasses or contact lenses while away from home, Seven Corners will arrange and pay to deliver the replacement prescription or glasses (lenses included) to the member’s current location. Only the cost of shipping is covered. The cost of obtaining the prescription and/or glasses is the insured’s responsibility.
The maximum amount of this benefit is $500.

8. Medical, dental, and pharmacy referral and case monitoring
If a member is hospitalized while on a covered trip, he or she receives access to Seven Corners’ network of medical providers. Seven Corners’ medical management team monitors the case from initial admission until discharge while maintaining close contact with the member’s attending physician.
