Emergency Assistance Plus

Your emergency and medical service safety net.

You’re on the road or in the air, hours from home. Suddenly, an accident leaves you in an emergency room—far from your own doctor, relying on medical care from people you’ve never met before. At AOPA Insurance Services, we analyzed medical emergencies like these. And we discovered an alarming fact: Even a simple problem that might be routine at home can quickly become a major emergency in a distant town or foreign country.

With a pilot's active lifestyle, it's critical to set up a solid back-up plan to help handle this type of crisis away from home. That's where Emergency Assistance Plus (EA+) comes in.

*Emergency Assistance Plus is not an insurance policy.

24-hour emergency and medical assistance back-up plan with option to add aircraft return

EA+ helps pay for emergencies your health insurance will not generally cover, getting you the medical care you need, when you need it. If an emergency occurs, AOPA EA+ automatically steps in to help with more than 20 emergency and medical services—so you can focus on your recovery and not on costs.

You even have the option of including expanded coverage for return of your aircraft if traveling via GA.  Should your aircraft be stranded due to your medical emergency, a certified pilot will be sent to your aircraft and fly it back to the airport where it is stored.  This is included when you enroll in EA+ with Aircraft Return, all for just $50 more per year.

Some of the benefits EA+ offers include:
