Air Ambulance

We had Allianz travel insurance when my husband was diagnosed with appendicitis. He was 4 days into it when he was finally and correctly diagnosed. Dr said he had to go to Mexico city for surgery. Doctor talked with our insurance company and convinced them he would not make it if they sent their crew from the states or if they insisted he go back to a US hospital. Our air ambulance came from Guadalajara and it took several hours before it
arrived but we have never seen the bill for that, the insurance company took care of it directly. Doctor said it was $13,000. The hospital in Mexico City was far nicer and more modern than any of our home town hospitals. We are still dealing with our personal medical insurance for Doctor and hospital bills as it pays first before the travel insurance, but other than it taking a long time I think all is going well. A pretty good value considering we paid less than $100 as it was based on the cost of our air tickets and one of us was flying on a "companion fare"
