Recently we announced great reviews we have been receiving from Veteran experts in the blog community, and today we wanted to let you know more about the excellent feedback we continue get about Veterans Advantage.
Linda Ranweiler, the spouse of a longtime Veterans Advantage member, reported a great experience using our $50,000 in Global MEDEVAC coverage from Travel Guard, a premium benefit that all members get at no extra charge.
As she later reported to us, despite the unfortunate nature of her MEDEVAC experience, the coverage she received from Veterans Advantage was terrific. And she is spreading the good word to others.
“After that accident, a friend of ours, also a Vet, joined up just so he could be protected by the travelers insurance,” she later told us.
According to the Military Frequent Flyer blog, here’s the full recap of what happened and how Veterans Advantage covered her on the expenses:
“We use the discounts all the time, and last year it paid off, big time. He [Linda’s husband] was in a paragliding accident in Mexico and hospitalized with multiple broken bones (pelvis, femur, heel). I called the number for Travel Guard, a benefit provided by Veterans Advantage at *no* additional cost, year round: ‘Travel Medical Emergency Services: help with local medical care and monitoring the quality of the hospital treatment, maintain daily contact between local physicians providing your care, and your personal physicians, family, employer, and others, provide medical records, and more.’”
They were incredible -- talked to me (and the doctors) daily, set up conference calls between MX and US surgeons, and sent a Leer jet to MEDEVAC us from Toluca hospital to Santa Fe NM hospital. That alone was worth $25,000 …and their coordination of it all saved me the hassle. So, so thankful.”
