What would you do if you were traveling away from home, and you or your family member needed emergency medical transportation due to a heart attack, a stroke, or an allergic reaction, or even if you just lost a prescription?
As a Legionnaire, a provisional registration has been authorized for an important member benefit — the Legionnaire Emergency Assistance Plus (EA+) Program.
EA+ stands as a critical safety net against emergency expenses your health insurance usually will NOT cover.
It helps you handle almost any crisis while you’re away from home (whether you’re on a short trip just a few hours away … traveling on business or with your family … or even out of the country).
That means EA+ helps make sure you’re getting the medical care you need. That you’re getting it QUICKLY. And gets you home to recuperate if necessary.
This information is only an outline of the plan’s features. Please read your EA+ Member Guide carefully to understand all the services available to you, as well as any rules and regulations. Washington state residents must be traveling more than 100 miles away from home to be eligible for EA+ services.
Your Personal “Medical Team” … How EA+ Helps You Handle Emergencies
Why face an emergency alone or waste time searching the internet late at night?
Thanks to your valued status as a Legionnaire, you can now activate a critical package of more than 20 emergency and medical services … to help you focus on your recovery and NOT on the costs (or even details like lining up second opinions or flying a loved one home). Take a look at everything EA+ does for you:

- Air Ambulance or Emergency Medical Evacuation if deemed medically necessary to get you to a more appropriate medical facility quickly if your current facility can't properly treat your medical condition.
- Medical Specialist Sent to You if your condition can't be evaluated by phone and you cannot be moved and local treatment is unavailable.
- Continuous Updates to a designated family member and/or a physician to keep them informed during your medical emergency.
- Transfer of Insurance Information to Medical Providers to assist with admission and to ensure your medical care is not delayed or denied.
- Cash Advance for Medical Payments paid directly to the hospital or physician against your valid credit card to keep your medical care going.
- Prescription Replacement Assistance if your medications are lost or stolen.
- 24-Hour Doctor/ER/Dentist/Attorney Locator Assistance to help you quickly find a professional no matter where you are in the world.

$65 savings off the general public rate means you'll pay less than 32¢ a day …
Act now to avoid any possible price increase
Can you imagine what you’d pay for an air ambulance on your own? To fly a specialist in to supervise your care? To fly in a loved one and then fly you both back home with you in the care of a nurse escort if that’s medically necessary? Or to have someone drive your stranded vehicle back home … even over thousands of miles?
Now compare those sky-high costs to the bargain rate for Legionnaire EA+:
Your status as a Legionnaire entitles you to $65 in savings off the non-member rate ... so, for less than 32¢ a day … $9.50 a month … just $114 for a full year, you can lock in this solid emergency “safety net.”
And only $30 more protects your family.
Enroll in EA+ now to lock in this low rate.
Your member benefits team squeezed rates as low as they could go when setting up Legionnaire EA+. But due to the rising cost of emergency and medical services, these bargain rates may be going up in the future.
But when you take care of this in the next 10 days, we’ll hold your EA+ rates down for an entire year — guaranteed.
It’s just an extra-mile Legionnaire perk … set up as a special “thank you” reward for acting right away.
When a crisis strikes …
How Legionnaire EA+ stands up to real-life emergencies
The true test of any program is how it reacts under fire. And EA+ has already proven to be a life-saver for Legionnaires. Here are just a few of the real-life emergencies EA+ has handled:
Bad Fall Requires Nurse Escort Home
Every year Bob and Esther winter in Rio Grande Valley, TX. While visiting friends on the way home, Esther took a bad fall. Her injuries were severe: both cheekbones were broken and her left eye socket was shattered. Bob called EA+ after she was stabilized at the hospital, and it was deemed medically necessary by the treating physicians and EA+ medical team, that she should be moved to a facility near their home, where their son worked and would help supervise her recovery.
Because of the extent of her injuries, EA+ provided a nurse escort to go with Bob and Esther all the way to the facility. EA+ arranged ground transportation, wheelchairs, and the nurse watched over Esther the entire flight, monitoring her oxygen levels and medication, and making sure Esther was comfortable. Also, because the EA+ medical team advised Esther’s medical condition warranted extra space on the plane, EA+ also paid for upgraded tickets for Esther and the nurse. “I don’t know what I would have done without EA+. Everything was so smooth and we were treated wonderfully. It took all the stress out of this situation. The EA+ program … is the best investment I ever made. I recommend it to everyone … all the people I have told about this can’t believe the kind of service I received.”
— Bob and Esther
Rio Grande Valley, Texas
Emergency Brain Surgery Required During Vacation
“When a blood clot was found in my brain while we were vacationing in Michigan, I had to undergo an emergency surgery immediately.
“After the surgery, my wife contacted the EA+ Coordinators for help in returning us home to Texas. Once the treating physician and EA+ doctors determined that I was healthy enough to fly home, EA+ Coordinators made travel arrangements for us. The EA+ Coordinators made sure to make arrangements for our car to be returned to Texas, flying our son in to drive it back.
“We made it back home safely, thanks to the EA+ Coordinators that made everything so easy on us.”
— Andrew Mason
San Antonio, Texas
Horseback Injury Rules Out Airplane Travel
“Our summer vacation to Wyoming was cut short when I fell off my horse. We were traveling with friends to enjoy the Wyoming summer and some horseback riding. Unfortunately, the fall left me with six broken ribs and a punctured lung.
“My husband called EA+ representatives for assistance in returning us home to Nebraska. After discussing the case with an EA+ Physician, the attending physician advised against air travel with concerns about changes in air pressure and the affect it would have on my injured lung. Having driven up in our friends’ truck, there was no comfortable way to transport me back home. As it was medically necessary, EA+ coordinated ground transportation to get us all the way home safely.
“Thankfully, it was determined that I did not require readmission to a hospital in Nebraska. My husband was able to drive me home safely, leaving our horses with our friends in Wyoming.”
— Jane Smith
Road Trip Cut Short Due to Stomach Virus
“Our annual road trip to enjoy springtime in the Appalachians was cut short when my husband was hospitalized for a stomach virus and dehydration.
Due to the long journey, the treating physician did not recommend that my husband and I drive our van home. Instead, I called the EA+ Coordinators for help. Once my husband was medically cleared to travel, EA+ went into action, making flight arrangements for us to return to Massachusetts.
“While our EA+ services also provided for coordination of vehicle return, we decided that a family friend would drive the van home, so EA+ flew that friend to our van, allowing us to fully focus on my husband’s recovery and not the stress.”
Other Legionnaires Have Asked:
The most common questions about EA+
Q. Why set up my “provisional” registration for EA+?
A. It's the quickest way to get you protected. Because with our active life styles, we felt it was imperative to activate full EA+ privileges for as many Legionnaires as possible … as quickly as possible.
Plus, acting right away also helps lock in your Legionnaire bargain price. EA+ rates are currently as low as they can go. And when you sign up for EA+ in the next 10 days, you’re guaranteed the same low less-than 32¢-a-day price for a FULL year.
I already have medical insurance and coverage under My Department Endorsed Insurance Program. Why lock in Legionnaire EA+, too?
A. EA+ is NOT medical insurance. It’s an important stop-gap between what your medical plan covers … and emergency expenses most health insurance plans usually do not cover. EA+ coordinates and provides for emergency air or ground evacuation transportation to a more appropriate facility when medically necessary. It steps forward to help you ensure your medical care can continue while the administrators sort out health insurance details. It provides medical monitoring to oversee your treatment and even helps your loved ones stay “in the loop” with a 24-hour emergency message relay service.
Plus, EA+ goes the extra mile for you by coordinating and providing plane tickets to fly a loved one to your side if you’re suddenly hospitalized while traveling alone away from home. It coordinates and provides airfare home for your spouse or unattended children if your trip is cut short by hospitalization due to your medical emergency. It also coordinates and provides to have someone to drive your vehicle home if you and your traveling companion can’t. And EA+ even takes care of your pets by making sure they get home safely if you can’t care for them during a crisis.
How do I use EA+ once I validate my status?
A. Your official EA+ Identification Card will be mailed to you in your Welcome Packet as soon as you complete your validation. This customized I.D. lists the toll-free hotline dedicated to Legionnaire EA+. (You’ll want to keep this I.D. in your wallet. Most Legionnaires tuck it right next to their medical plan I.D. card.)
Then if you’re suddenly faced with an emergency when you’re traveling away from home (whether you’re on a trip … traveling for work … or on a vacation), just call the toll-free hotline. EA+ will immediately jump in from there.
Or if you’re planning a trip and want help with visas … inoculations … or assistance lining up proper medical care for a current health condition, just call the toll-free hotline or the collect number if you are overseas for valuable pre-trip help.
