If travel excludes USA, see Atlas International Group – Travel Medical Insurance.
The Atlas America Group plan is with you and your group of 5 or more almost anywhere you may travel in the world. Atlas America Group coverage is designed for mission trips, large family vacations, student groups, corporate groups, and overseas excursions for other large organizations.
Why Choose Atlas America Group?
Whatever the reason, traveling internationally with a large group should be a pleasant experience. Emergencies and complications such as natural disasters, injury, and illness are a fact of life, and can be even tougher to manage for a large group of people. While we hope none of these incidents happen... we’re here to help if they do. Coverage for medical expenses in case of hospitalization – including a stay in an intensive care unit or outpatient treatment – Emergency Medical Evacuation, and Lost Checked Luggage are just some of the benefits you can count on from Atlas America Group.
My family has medical insurance in our home country; do we need group travel medical insurance?
Often, the primary medical insurance in your home country will not cover you and your family while traveling internationally, and medical expenses can be very costly while abroad. Atlas America Group plans offer budget-friendly coverage—plans start at less than $1 a day!
Additionally, Atlas America Group includes important travel assistance services such as translation assistance while being treated, doctor and hospital referrals, and assistance replacing lost prescriptions.

What's Covered by Atlas America Group?
Emergency Medical Evacuation and Emergency Reunion
Would you know what to do if you found yourself in a life-threatening situation far from home? We are experienced in arranging emergency medical evacuations. Atlas America Group will cover eligible expenses necessary to transport you from an initial treating facility to the nearest hospital qualified to treat your life-threatening condition. We also understand the importance of family support in these difficult situations. Atlas America Group will also cover the transportation, lodging, and meal costs for a relative to join you after a covered emergency medical evacuation, up to the lifetime limit.
Repatriation of Remains
What would your family do if disaster strikes while you are away from home? The death of a loved one is never easy, no matter the circumstances. In the unfortunate event of your death while traveling abroad, Atlas America Group will arrange for and cover the costs associated with the repatriation of your remains.
Return of Minor Children
If you are expected to be hospitalized for more than 36 hours due to a covered injury or illness, and covered children under 18 years of age will be left unattended as a result, Atlas America Group will cover the transportation cost for the children to return home.
In these turbulent times, the risk of a terrorist attack is a reality. If you are in the wrong place at the wrong time, and the country you’re visiting is NOT under a level 3 or level 4 travel advisory, Atlas America Group offers coverage for eligible medical expenses resulting from those acts. Coverage excludes countries for which the U.S. Department of State has issued a a level 3 (“reconsider travel”) or level 4 (“do not travel”) advisory.
If, during the coverage period and after your arrival, the United States government issues level 3 or level 4 travel advisory for your destination country, Atlas America Group will coordinate your alternate departure arrangements from that country and cover eligible associated costs.
Natural Disaster Benefit – Replacement Accommodations
Natural disasters can happen anywhere and at any time. If a natural disaster occurs while on your trip, causing you to become displaced from your accommodations, Atlas America Group will provide relief of a maximum of $250 a day for 5 days to help cover the costs of alternative accommodations.
If you are hospitalized, the world around you does not stop. What’s more, in some places hospitals do not provide their patients basic necessities like meals, toothpaste or soap. If you are hospitalized as an inpatient for treatment of a covered illness or injury, Atlas America Group will provide $100 for each night you spend in the hospital.

This insurance is not subject to, and does not provide certain insurance benefits required by the United States’ Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (“PPACA”). PPACA requires certain US citizens or US residents to obtain PPACA compliant health insurance, or “minimum essential coverage.” PPACA also requires certain employers to offer PPACA compliant insurance coverage to their employees. Tax penalties may be imposed on U.S. residents or citizens who do not maintain minimum essential coverage, and on certain employers who do not offer PPACA compliant insurance coverage to their employees. In some cases, certain individuals may be deemed to have minimum essential coverage under PPACA even if their insurance coverage does not provide all of the benefits required by PPACA. You should consult your attorney or tax professional to determine whether this policy meets any obligations you may have under PPACA.
