Don't get Medjet medevac insurance!

This is the message I received after joining Medjet for medevac insurance. As an expat, I'm glad I didn't need the insurance! They don't serve any place that has a State Department Level 3 or Level 4 warning... I did not read the fine print, my mistake. Buyer beware.

"Thank you for your membership with Medjet! The state of Guerrero, Mexico is not covered for medical transport due to it being rated as a Level 4: Do Not Travel by the U.S. Department of State's travel advisory website Countries rated as Level 3 or 4 by the U.S. Department of State are excluded for medical transport as per our Rules and Regulations. I apologize for any confusion! Unfortunately we are unable to cancel the membership as it has already gone into effect. I apologize for any inconvenience! You will be protected for any travels to countries below a rating of Level 3 or 4 until the membership expiration of 12/1/2020. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance!

Thank you!

They will accept your money but not transport you out of here, and then no offer to refund the balance of your premium if you want to cancel? What a great company.

If you paid with a credit card, you can challenge that I am sure.

Except the OP does say it was in the "fine print" of the policy that he didn't read. Given that it was included in the original contact, it probably wont work.That said, it costs nothing to try

Get a SKYMED medical evacuation plan! SkyMed DOES cover Zone 4 "Do Not Travel" areas in Mexico and takes you back to the home hospital of your choice in the USA, Canada or even here in Mexico if that is what you want.

Do NOT be confused by the similar sounding name. SkyMed has over 30 years experience rescuing members and DOES cover ALL areas of Mexico including Zone 4 Do Not Travel areas.

Many other advantages too. Once approved, Guaranteed Renewal no matter what your age or future medical condition or even if you have used your SkyMed before for an evacuation!.
