MASA Benefits    /    Hospital Visitor Transportation Coverage

Hospital Visitor Transportation Coverage

When you’re hospitalized, having someone familiar by your side can provide much-needed comfort and support — especially if you’re hospitalized for an extended period of time and far from home. Hospital Visitor Transportation Coverage covers the cost of bringing a family member or friend to your bedside. It’s one of the many valuable benefits offered with certain MASA plans.

What is Hospital Visitor Transportation Transportation Coverage?

With our Hospital Visitor Transportation Coverage, a spouse, family member, or any companion can come to visit you if you’re hospitalized for more than seven days in a medical facility that’s over 100 miles away from your home.

We’ll coordinate their transportation and cover the expense, so your family member or friend can focus on being there for you, without worrying about the cost or logistics of travel.

To arrange the transport, MASA may need to work with the insured person and attending hospital staff to obtain medical records, travel documents, and other information.

Why do I need Hospital Visitor Transportation Coverage?

An extended hospital stay can be a lonely and stressful experience, especially if you’re far from your support system. Having a friend or family member by your side can provide emotional support, comfort, and advocacy.

Your visitor can help communicate with doctors and nurses and provide important information about your medical history and preferences. They can also help keep you connected to life outside the hospital, providing updates on family, friends, and events.

Hospital Visitor Transportation Coverage in action

What if you’re traveling out of state for work when you experience a serious car accident? You could be hospitalized with multiple injuries and may need to stay in the hospital for several weeks. Your spouse will want to be by your side but may be worried about the cost and logistics of last-minute plane tickets.

Fortunately, you have Hospital Visitor Transportation Coverage through your MASA plan. If you’re hospitalized, you or a loved one on your behalf can call MASA, and we’ll arrange and cover the cost of a round-trip ride for your spouse to come visit you, so your chosen loved one can be with you during a difficult time.
