Among the several benefits included in our international Atlas Travel medical plan, coverage for injury or illness sustained from natural disasters, including the recent Icelandic volcanic eruption, is provided at no additional cost. In the event emergency medical evacuation is required, all Atlas Travel policies include a $500,000 evacuation benefit. We are aware that natural disasters can occur at any time, and as a result Atlas Travel also includes benefits to assist the member when displaced from paid lodging due to a natural disaster. Despite coverage during these conditions, we highly recommend travelers monitor conditions and travel warnings, and proceed accordingly with caution.
