PARTICIPANT INSURANCE INFORMATION
MEDICAL EVACUATION INSURANCE
While not required, it is very strongly recommended that participants enroll in a personal medical evacuation policy that will cover the costs of both emergency medical care and transportation. The Kyrgyzstan Mountain Rescue Service (MRS) is the most reliable local rescue service and has the capacity to mobilize a heli rescue, but requires preregistration and medical evacuation insurance that guarantees at least 30,000 € in coverage. 40 Tribes will ensure that all participants with sufficient coverage are properly registered with the MRS ahead of your arrival.
Due to the multitude of things that could go wrong (cancelled/missed flights, lost bags, illness, family emergency, etc), we additionally recommend that you enroll in a short term travel insurance/trip protection policy that will provide coverage in the event that some unforeseen issue impacts your trip.
Global Rescue is a US-based provider that specializes in global medical evacuations. Global Rescue is a partner of 40 Tribes and meets the requirements of the MRS. Global Rescue also offers a travel insurance supplement. You can learn more about GR’s capabilities and enroll here: https://ss.globalrescue.com/partner/40tribes.
