Default AAA and airlifting

Hi, again not sure where to post this. I believe if you have the "superior" or delux Triple A plan that they will airlift you out of an area to a hospital without cost if there is a medical emergency. This is my understanding although all should check first. I had mine upgraded to this at little cost. It's just an added thing to have when travelling that can be really great. Talk to them about the details.
Chemically sensitive disc/Annular tears, DDD, mild bulging, facet arthritus

Dancing accident in 96. tried PT, acupuncture, pilates, pain mgmt. nothing worked. Epidurals, facet blocks, caudal blocks, discogram. Opiates for ten years, oral prednisone, toradol inj. & more.

Two level spinal fusion with BMS, cages, hardware. due to bone density problems from chemotherapy, they had to go in front and back. Surgery Nov. 6, 2010. So far no regrets.

This coverage sounds good. From what I've seen, most of these types of policies cover compeletely unanticipated events. Traveling for surgery, then having a complication is not something that would be covered by the policies I've seen.

1997 MVA
2000 L4-5 Microdiscectomy/laminotomy
2001 L5-S1 Micro-d/lami

Summer 2009, more bad thoracic discs!
