Global Rescue Summary

One of the company’s selling points is its partnership with John Hopkins Hospital, a center for excellence for its emergency medical services. Global Rescue offers members the option for home hospital of choice. Limits also include the use of commercial flights. Global Rescue has high cash limits which makes it ideal even for long distance transports. A good option but not exactly the best choice for emergency medical evacuation services.
