Whether you are already enrolled in Emergency Assistance Plus (EA+) or aren’t familiar with the program, chances are you have an idea of what it entails. EA+ is there for you in the event of an accident with 24-hour emergency and medical assistance, but there are some other surprising benefits of enrolling in the program.
Have concerns about an upcoming trip? One call will get you the latest details on consular services, inoculations, visas, and travel advisories. At any time during your trip, you can contact EA+ for up-to-date security intelligence—vital if you feel threatened by political or social unrest, bad weather, or environmental hazards.
Lose your prescriptions, corrective lenses, or medical devices while traveling? EA+ will even help get replacements rushed to you as soon as possible. All costs other than shipping will be billed to your credit card.
These are just a few of the unexpected benefits at your disposal with EA+. Not already enrolled? Sign up today!

For more than 25 years, the FAA has taken the position that hangars at federally funded airports should be reserved for aeronautical use.
