MedjetAssist Renews Partnership As The Official Global Air-Medical Transport Membership Program of the LPGA

BIRMINGHAM, AL, November 7, 2013 – MedjetAssist recently renewed its partnership with the LPGA (Ladies Professional Golf Association) as “the official global air-medical transport membership program of the LPGA.” Since 2011, Medjet has served to protect both LPGA Tour players and staff while traveling.

“We are routinely traveling near and far to tournaments, so Medjet’s services are a natural fit for our organization,” said Jon Podany, LPGA’s chief marketing officer. “The membership program provides our players and staff peace of mind knowing that, should they need efficient emergency medical care, help is only a phone call away.”

If a Medjet member is hospitalized more than 150 miles from home – virtually anywhere in the world – Medjet reviews the member’s condition, and if transport criteria are met, the company arranges a medical transfer to the hospital of choice in the member’s home country.  There are no health restrictions to enroll, no co-pays or cost limitations and zero additional charges after a membership fee is paid.

Medjet memberships also include travel assistance benefits such as medical and legal referrals, telephone interpretation, emergency message relay to family and friends, and information on visa, passport and immunization requirements for travel to foreign countries.

"We are honored the LPGA has renewed their confidence in Medjet with an extended partnership,” said Roy Berger, president and CEO of MedjetAssist. “The LPGA is committed to athletic excellence and safety; we are proud to be affiliated with this highly respected organization.”
