Natural Disaster Services are only available to Participants when they are outside of their Home Country. Expatriates are eligible to receive such services while in their Host Country, or when travelling outside of their Home Country. Travel Assistance Services shall only be provided to a Participant after UHCG receives the request (in writing or via phone) from the Participant or an authorized representative of the Participant of the need for the requested Travel Assistance Services. In all cases, the requested Services and payments must be arranged, authorized, verified and approved in advance by UHCG. UHCG acts as a referral service and facilitator of the Travel Assistance Services and does not directly provide medical, transportation, legal or other services that are performed by Providers. Providers are independent contractors and are not agents of UHCG. UHCG shall not be responsible for any services performed by Providers, and Participants hereby waive any and all claims against UHCG for any loss, damage or injury arising out of, or resulting from, any services performed, or advice given, by Providers, including but not limited to medical advice and treatment. With respect to any evacuation requested by a Participant, UHCG reserves the right to determine, at its sole discretion, the need for and the feasibility of an evacuation and the means, method, timing, and destination of such evacuation, and may consult with relevant third-parties, including as applicable, Physician Advisors, treating physicians, governments, and security analysts as needed to make its determination. In the event a non-medical evacuation has been requested by a Participant, UHCG will use commercially reasonable efforts to adhere to any announcement made by the Participant’s Home or Host Country ordering the departure of personnel. In the event a Participant refuses an evacuation, UHCG shall not be responsible for expenses incurred for evacuation after the date for which the original evacuation is scheduled by UHCG. The decision to travel is the sole responsibility of the Participant. UHCG may limit Medical Evacuation, Repatriation and related services upon reasonable notice in the event of an epidemic. Limitations may involve geographies, covered services, etc. In the event of any limitation, UHCG shall provide as much advanced written notice as possible.
