Evacuation Cover

4.03 Evacuation cover: What we will pay for

  • We will only pay for evacuation to the nearest place where the required treatment is available. This could be to another part of the country that you are in, and may not be your home country

  • We will pay for the reasonable travel costs for another Bupa Malta member on the member’s registration to accompany you, but only if it is medically necessary

  • We will also pay for the reasonable costs of your, and the accompanying member’s, return journey to the place you were evacuated from. All arrangements for your return should be approved in advance by us or our appointed representatives and the journey must be made within fourteen days of the end of the treatment.

We will pay for either:

  • the reasonable cost of the return journey by the most direct route available by land or sea, or
  • the cost of an economy class air ticket by the most direct route available whichever is the lesser amount.

Note: we do not pay for any other costs related to the evacuation such as hotel accommodation or taxis. Costs of any treatment you receive are not payable under Evacuation cover, but are payable from your medical cover as described in your Table of Benefits and the “What is covered?” section of this guide.

Please also note that for medical reasons the member receiving treatment may travel in a different class from their companion.
