It is a known fact that, medical facilities in the larger ports and in seafarers’ home countries normally have a different, very expensive price list for the seafarers and shipping companies.

During this time, we have effectively saved up to 45% of medical expenses on evacuation and repatriations, medical cases in ports of call and treatment in home countries. Medlife assistance has realized that such a high percentage of savings through active case management, automated cost containment tools, price and discounts negotiations, selection of relevant medical facilities and recommendations of relevant ports and countries for treatment.
These tools are essential in guaranteeing the crew member receives high quality, cost effective treatment while ensuring appropriateness of care and compliance with international medical standards.
