In North America, we are accustomed to certain medical services that are simply not available in other parts of the world. Not everyone realizes that things like ambulances and emergency medical helicopters are not common, or even available, in many of the smaller towns in Mexico. While no one likes to have to consider the possibility of having a medical emergency while on vacation in Mexico, the possibility does exist, as accidents can happen anywhere and at any time. However, a lack of proper planning could result in an accident that is very costly, mainly to your bank account. However, to the properly prepared, an accident could be a simple, and inexpensive, bump in the road of life.

Mexpro Assist is a comprehensive travel assistance insurance plan for travel in Mexico. One of the benefits of Mexpro Assist is the emergency medical assistance and medical evacuation service which includes emergency medical transfers, such as in an ambulance, and air evacuation, such as in a Medivac. For example, if you have an accident in a location in Mexico where there is not an ambulance nearby, one will be called for you. The driver may have to drive many miles to get you and take you to a hospital. If you don't have insurance, this could be a very, very costly ordeal. In some situations, you may even need a Medivac to lift you out. Again, a very costly ride that you may not even be able to afford. This would not be a pleasant situation for you or your loved ones to encounter, especially during a vacation. Mexpro Assist is the answer to preventing a situation like this from ever occurring.

Mexpro Assist is a simple and inexpensive solution to the above situation because when you have its coverage, you have access to a live, 24 hour helpline. For those with Mexpro Assist, help is always only a phone call away. Simply call the 24 hour operator and explain your situation. They will take it from there. Help will be on the way in minutes, and your costs will be minimal. Not only will you not have to stress about the language barrier (if you don't speak Spanish), you won't have to worry about getting to a quality medical center. Mexpro works with the best medical centers in Mexico, so you will always be provided with the best medical care immediately.

You can travel more secure, knowing that no matter what lies ahead in your travels, you will be completely covered. Even in the unfortunate event of an accident that requires removal by Medivac, you can relax knowing that the best available medical care is on its way, whether or not you have the cash to cover it. In Mexico, it is not uncommon for emergency medical services to require payment upfront. Don't be caught off-guard and get stuck with a bulky medical bill on your next vacation. Simply contact a Mexpro representative and ask about getting Mexpro Assist emergency medical coverage for your next trip to Mexico.
