Program Includes:

- Under Rustic Pathways’ Emergency Medical Service, International SOS will pay for medically related evacuations and/or repatriation expenses incurred while members are travelling outside their country of residence. International SOS maintains the right to determine if an evacuation is medically necessary and covered under their membership, although when possible, International SOS will inform us prior to initiating an evacuation if the costs are covered. In cases where an evacuation is requested and not covered under their membership, International SOS may assist in arranging and executing services on a fee for service basis. Evacuation costs not covered in our membership include, but are not limited to, evacuations caused by security related issues, natural disaster, high-risk activities, pre-existing conditions, mental health, unlawful acts, or self inflicted injury or illness.

Experience Required



All participants on Rustic Pathways programs must have comprehensive medical insurance coverage. International SOS, is not a medical insurance provider and does not cover the cost of medical treatment before, during, or after participation on a program. If necessary, International SOS can guarantee payment to prevent delays in care, but are not responsible for the actual cost of care.
