    Carbon Fibre,

    I apologize for the delay in the response time, but I am happy to help answer any questions you may have for your upcoming trip to New Zealand.

    Global Rescue is very appropriate for hunters is that if a member has a condition requiring inpatient hospitalization (a night stay in the hospital), we'll perform field rescue and meet that member at their exact point of illness or injury. From there, we'll evacuate the member all the way back to their home country hospital of choice, up to a cost of $500,000. The reason Global Rescue is able to perform field rescue is that our phones are staffed 24/7 by critical care paramedics and we have a team of on-staff specialist physicians. That way, when a member calls in with an emergency, our medical professionals are able to make a determination right over the phone and get the wheels turning on an evacuation immediately.

    All of our cases recieve oversight from the Special Operations Division of Johns Hopkins Medicine (same service used by the Dept. of Homeland Security) and all of our memberships offer 24/7 medical consultation regardless of how severe an issue may be.

    It is important to note that Global Rescue is a membership organization, not an insurance company. We do not reimburse costs that have not been arranged or provided by Global Rescue. Your membership does not cover medical bills, hospital stays, trip cancellation, lost baggage, etc.

    Let me know if you have any questions! My name is Kevin Helm and you can reach me at khelm@globalrescue.com or on my direct line +1.617.459.4204
