What Is Assist America?



Assist America provides emergency services
for some 40 million travelers worldwide.

Founded in 1990, Assist America, Inc. is the nation’s largest provider of global emergency medical services through employee and student benefit plans. Our company was formed specifically to address the unique requirements of the insurance industry’s large membership groups. We cover employees (and association members) when traveling on business and leisure trips. In addition, our services are extended to spouse and dependent children when traveling for pleasure.

Our members enjoy complete peace of mind, freed from dealing with complex decisions and financial considerations during difficult times, and secure in knowing that a phone call to Assist America will put our vast network of resources in motion on behalf of any medical travel emergency. And, if appropriate medical care is not available locally, we will transport a patient, by air ambulance if necessary, to the nearest facility capable of providing the required care. 

Our 24-hour-a-day, 365-day-a-year Operations Centers are staffed by experienced, knowledgeable, and multilingual emergency assistance professionals.
