Grand Rapids:

Out of Area Protection

It’s the last thing you would ever plan during a vacation, but the financial and logistical burden of dealing with a death away from home can be staggering.

Travel with Confidence with an Out of Area Protection Plan from Gerst and MASA

Basic health insurance plans and even medicare do not offer coverage that addresses dying away from home. Returning the body back to an individual’s home can cost between $2,500 – $3,000, with international transport ranging from $5,000 to $10,000. Obtaining domestic permits can be a challenging process that varies from state to state, while international arrangements usually require coordination with the consulate office after deciphering local regulations. 

Thankfully, there is a way to give yourself and your loved ones lasting peace of mind with MASA TRS (Transport and Relocation Solutions). MASA covers both the expense and logistics of transporting your body if the unexpected were to occur while traveling 75 miles or greater away from home.
