Advance for medical expenses
In the event of the beneficiary being hospitalized abroad as a result of a serious bodily injury and if they are not affiliated with any social security scheme or pension or insurance organization, Saint-Christophe Mutual Assistance will advance the medical and surgical expenses prescribed by any medical authority on behalf of the policy holder and in agreement with the latter. Saint-Christophe Mutual Assistance assumes this responsibility to allow for the immediate admission of the beneficiary to a hospital while reserving the right to verify the policy holder's grade of beneficiary with the insurance company.
The direct payment cap is set at €30,000 per beneficiary.
In the event of serious bodily injury, the physicians of Saint-Christophe Mutual Assistance will contact the attending doctors on-site and make the decisions that best suit the beneficiary's condition based on information gathered and medical requirements alone. If the medical team of Saint-Christophe Mutual Assistance advises the repatriation of the beneficiary, Saint-Christophe Mutual Assistance will organize and handle this according to those medical requirements deemed appropriate by its medical team. The repatriation destination will be the hospital best suited for the situation.
Insurance of emergency hospitalization medical expenses
The beneficiary is guaranteed the reimbursement of their medical and/or hospitalization expenses following a serious bodily injury which occurred and was witnessed outside their home country during the guarantees' validity period, and they remain their responsibility after the intervention of Social Security, their supplementary health scheme and/or any other individual or collective insurance organization from which they benefit.
Accompaniment of minors
If the person(s) accompanying minors is(are) unable to care for them as a result of sickness, accident or death, Saint-Christophe Mutual Assistance will organize and provide a person that resides in mainland France and has been designated by the family with a round-trip economy class airline ticket or a first class train ticket, so that the person can come to get and take the children back home. In the event that none of the people mentioned below can be contacted or they themselves cannot make the trip, Saint-Christophe Mutual Assistance will send a hostess to take care of the children and bring them to the person designated by the beneficiary.
