NASA Federal employee travelers have access to the U.S. Air Ambulance website called NASA Assist that has been designed specifically for our use,OCHMO International Medical Evacuation Information presentation.
Travelers are urged to check this NASA Occupational Health webpage for updated information before traveling abroad and to access the NASA Assist website before and during their trip for valuable tools and resources.
Contact information for U.S. Air Ambulance:
- Toll free phone number (only in US/Canada): 800-336-4079
- From all other parts of the world, call collect: 941-926-3949
- Non-NASA specific U.S. Air Ambulance website: http://www.usairambulance.net/index-c.php.
- International medical evacuation assistance is only available to Federal NASA employees conducting official business. As with our previous vendor, NASA employee family members/friends and NASA contractors should make separate arrangements if they desire travel insurance or medical treatment or evacuation assistance while traveling abroad.
- Personal non-business related excursions are not covered by NASA’s contract with U.S. Air Ambulance. For these circumstances, personal travel insurance is relatively inexpensive and, if desired, should be obtained before leaving the United States. See the U.S. Department of State for information on medical insurance for travel.
- NASA Federal travelers will not be required to relay information regarding designated physician for evacuation approval or Federal employee status checks in order to get assistance. U.S. Air Ambulance is aware of the process to be used for contacting NASA's designated physician for evacuation approval and for ensuring that NASA travelers are Federal employees. An employee's phone call to U.S. Air Ambulance triggers the process.
