SOS MEDICAL SERVICE PROGRAMME
SOS will provide you with the following services as a result of your involvement in a Medical Emergency , subject to the limits of the Benefit Table:
1) Medical Advice and Information Hotline:
The SOS medical personnel, including paramedics, nurses and doctors, are available 24 hours a day to provide general medical information and advice. This is an advisory service, as a telephonic conversation does not permit an accurate diagnosis.
2) Emergency Medical Advice and Assistance Hotline:
In addition to the general medical advice service, one call to the same number will trigger the SOS medical operators who will guide you through a medical crisis situation, provide emergency advice and organise for you to receive the support you need utilising the 24 hour Alarm Centre Doctor.

In the event of your involvement in Medical Emergency, SOS will arrange and pay up to the amount specified in the Benefit Table for Emergency Medical Transportation by road and/or by air ambulance, under appropriate medical supervision, if necessary, to the nearest medical facility capable of providing adequate care. Medical considerations, the degree of urgency, your state and fitness to travel and other considerations, including, but not limited to, airport availability, weather conditions and distance to be covered as assessed by the SOS Doctor and support staff will determine whether transport will be provided by medically equipped aircraft, helicopter, regular scheduled flight, rail or road.
• Inter-hospital Transfer:
If the SOS Doctor, in consultation with the attending doctor, determines that you should be transferred to an alternate medical facility (because the necessary treatment cannot be continued at the present facility) SOS will arrange and pay up to the amount specified in the Benefit Table for your transportation to the closest facility where the treatment can be continued after you have been stabilised.
