FMCA Assist

FMCAssist, an emergency evacuation/repatriation and emergency medical reunion benefit, is an association-paid member benefit. No sign-up required. Just join FMCA and you are covered.

FMCAssist is included as a portion of the annual dues for all full members (F), life members (L), and family associate members (A). FMCA is the only RV club to offer such a valuable benefit to its membership.

Highlights of FMCAssist include:

  • emergency evacuation/repatriation
  • emergency medical reunion
  • return of mortal remains
  • return of dependents
  • RV/vehicle return (limited to North America)
  • pet return.

FMCAssist coverage is available to members worldwide as long as you are more than 100 miles from home. You can be traveling in a motorhome, car, plane, ship, or motorcycle to be eligible for this benefit. If you are a full-time RVer, you are always considered 100 miles from home. Some exclusions and limitation amounts pertain to this benefit.

FMCAssist coverage is provided by Seven Corners and is underwritten by Lloyd’s of London.

What do you need to do to enroll in this program? Absolutely nothing! As long as you continue to keep your FMCA dues current, and as long as FMCA continues to provide this program as a benefit, you will be covered.

Schedule of Benefits

1. Emergency medical evacuation/repatriation
The plan will pay covered expenses incurred if any covered injury or illness that commences during the period of coverage results in the medically necessary emergency medical evacuation or repatriation (i.e., the member’s medical condition warrants immediate transportation from the medical facility where he or she is located to the nearest medical facility that is capable of furnishing the required level and type of care for the applicable illness or injury as determined by the attending physician in consultation with the Seven Corners medical director).

The maximum amount of this benefit is $500,000.

2. Emergency medical reunion
When emergency medical evacuation or repatriation is ordered and the attending physician recommends that a family member travel with the member, Seven Corners will provide transportation for one individual of the member’s choice to be at their side while they are hospitalized and then accompany them during their return to their permanent primary residence. Costs incurred for transportation and lodging are covered by the insurance policy. Approval and coordination of this benefit must be provided by the Seven Corners medical director in consultation with the attending physician to be considered a covered expense.

The maximum amount of this benefit is $50,000.
