COVERAGE
EMERGENCY MEDICAL AIR EVACUATION
 
When You incur emergency Transportation Expense as a result of a sickness or injury while coverages are In Force, the following benefits are payable directly to the service provider, up to the Maximum Benefit amount.

For Emergency Medical Air Evacuation.  If the sending caregiver and the receiving Legally Qualified Physician determines that air transportation to a Hospital or medical facility is safe, appropriate and medically necessary to treat an unforeseen sickness or injury which is acute or life threatening and adequate medical treatment is not available in the immediate area, the transportation expense incurred will be paid for the lesser of the negotiated rate or the Usual and Customary Charges for Your transportation to the closest Hospital or medical facility capable of providing that treatment.

Benefits payable under this Policy are secondary to and for the excess over all other insurance or indemnity payments.  If You have other insurance, including Workman’s Compensation, that may provide benefits for this same loss, the Company reserves the right to reduce the benefits payable hereunder to the extent of such other insurance or indemnification payments.
