A managed care company has chosen a global emergency medical assistance vendor.
Humana Inc., Louisville, Ky., will be buying travel medical assistance services for its members from Assist America Inc., Princeton, N.J., according to Assist America.
Services included in the agreement include medical referral and monitoring service, emergency medical evacuations, medical repatriations, hospital admission guarantees, and compassionate visit transportation.
