Even a simple medical problem that might be "routine" at home can quickly blow up into a major emergency in a distant town or foreign country.

That's why AMTA set up Emergency Assistance Plus. It stands as a critical safety net against emergency transportation expenses your health insurance usually will NOT cover.

EA+ helps make sure you're getting the medical care you need. That you're getting it QUICKLY. And then gets you home to recuperate (if necessary).

It's a dependable safety net to help you handle almost any crisis while you're away from home. Whether you're on a trip just a few hours away, traveling on a business trip, or on vacation with your family. Even out of the country.

BEST OF ALL: YOU CANNOT BE TURNED DOWN FOR EA+. We negotiated guaranteed acceptance privileges for all AMTA Members and their families.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does EA+ work with my medical insurance? 

EA+ is an important stop-gap between what your medical plan covers and emergency medical services most health insurance plans never cover. If you become sick or injured while traveling and are admitted to the hospital, EA+ provides emergency medical evacuation to get you to a more appropriate hospital if your current facility can’t properly treat your medical condition, or gets you home once you are stable enough to travel after your medical emergency. EA+ arranges for medical experts to oversee your treatment and even helps your loved ones stay informed with a 24-hour toll-free emergency relay service.

I’d like to enroll in Emergency Assistance Plus, but I’m traveling soon. How can I gain access to my membership materials?

The fastest way to enroll is over the phone at 1-866-803-6773. Enrollments made over the phone are processed within 1 business day. If your email address is provided at the time of enrollment, you will receive a Welcome Email with a Temporary I.D. card within 3 business days of your enrollment being processed. If you need your Member Guide or Identification Card sooner, please call our Customer Service team at the number at the top of this page for assistance.

Are there any restrictions about which countries I can visit and still be covered?

If you are traveling in a country on the OFAC-sanctioned list, you are not covered by EA+. If you’re unsure of the status of a country in which you are planning to travel please visit www.emergencyassistanceplus.com/OFAC to view a current list of countries with OFAC-sanctioned restrictions.

How do I use EA+ once I activate full privileges?

Your official EA+ Identification Card will be mailed to you in your Welcome Kit as soon as you complete your enrollment. This customized I.D. card lists the emergency phone numbers to call. (You'll want to keep this I.D. card in your wallet. Most people tuck it right next to their medical plan I.D. card.)

Then if you're suddenly faced with an emergency when you're traveling away from home, just call the emergency number located on the back of your I.D. card, which is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. EA+ will immediately jump in from there and begin monitoring your care. It's very important to make sure that all family members are aware that you have EA+ in the event that you are unable to communicate with medical personnel as EA+ must arrange all transportation services.

Who is included under the Emergency Assistance Plus family plan?

As long as you sign up for the family plan,  all family members who meet the definition of dependent are eligible for EA+ services: your spouse (to include legally recognized domestic partner); your unmarried children from birth and through age 18; or through age 22 if enrolled as a full-time student in an accredited college, university, vocational, or technical school; and children whose support is required by a court decree: or adult child(ren) or grandchild(ren) with mental or physical disabilities who are solely dependent for maintenance and support. Children include natural children, stepchildren and legally adopted children. They must be primarily dependent on you for support and maintenance and must live in a parent-child relationship with you. If traveling on a trip without you, Dependents are covered provided the trip does not exceed ninety (90) days.

Do my spouse and I have to be traveling together to be covered?
No. If you are enrolled in the family membership, your spouse/domestic partner is protected by EA+ whether or not he or she is traveling with you. The family membership gives them access to the exact same services as the primary member.


Please Read Regarding Your EA+ Protection

There are many ways EA+ helps protect you from medical mishaps. But to keep the price reasonable, there are some restrictions you should know about. For example, your trip must be for reasons other than medical. You're not protected if your trip is just for treatment at a distant clinic or hospital. Also, EA+ is not a substitute for your medical insurance. Your regular insurance pays for your medical care. EA+ provides all the extra services described in these materials, which help ensure you get an appropriate diagnosis and proper ongoing care. Plus, EA+ helps make sure you get home quickly and safely if need be.
