If you are enrolled in the IARC Medical Plan, you and your respective dependents are covered for emergency medical evacuation through United Healthcare Global. This benefit excludes participants who are enrolled in bridging and retiree medical insurance.
If you sustain an injury or suffer a sudden and unexpected illness and adequate medical treatment is not available in your current location, United Healthcare Global will arrange and pay for a medically supervised evacuation to the nearest medical facility, as determined by United Healthcare Global to be capable of providing appropriate medical treatment. Your medical condition must be such that, in the professional opinion of the healthcare provider and United Healthcare Global, you require immediate emergency medical treatment, without which there would be a significant risk of death or serious impairment.
If the condition is an emergency, you should go immediately to the nearest physician or hospital without delay and then place a collect call to the 24-hour Emergency Response Center in Baltimore, Maryland at +1-410-453-6330. When you call you will be asked to provide your name, organization’s name, and AIARC Group Policy Number 35321.
