Travel coverage

Make sure your employees have the care they need, wherever they are.


If you or your employees are working remotely or traveling outside of San Diego, it’s important to know that you’re cared for. Sharp Health Plan has always included 24-hour emergency care worldwide, but as a member of our family, your employees also have access to a global emergency services program through Assist America® at no additional cost.

 

From mini-vacations to international adventures, give your employees peace of mind while traveling

When faced with a medical emergency while traveling 100 miles or more away from home
or in another country, Assist America connects Sharp Health Plan members to doctors, hospitals,
pharmacies and other services.

Through Assist America, one simple call can put your employees in touch with:

  • Experienced crisis management professionals 
  • Medical evaluations and referrals
  • Emergency medical transportation
  • Critical care monitoring
  • Prescription assistance
  • Emergency trauma counseling
  • Lost luggage or document assistance
  • Interpreter and legal referrals
