One Episcopal mission team discovered the value of this coverage on a trip to the Dominican Republic. While working on a homemade ladder, one worker fractured his leg when the ladder collapsed beneath him. The policy paid for emergency surgery at a local hospital and the cost of emergency evacuation back to the United States.

“The company became the middleman between the primary care provider (in the United States) and the Dominican hospital. It got difficult because the doctors didn’t speak English and our Spanish speakers didn’t know the Spanish medical terms.” Charles Schulz—Christ Church, Richmond, VA

In the end, interpreters were provided on both ends of the conversation to get the matter resolved.
