MedAire Signs Agreement with CRS Yachts

MedAire and CRS Yachts, insurance provider, announced the signing of a Direct Billing Agreement (DBA) to facilitate the process for crew and guests to receive shoreside medical treatment.

The DBA allows MedAire to invoice CRS Yachts for covered services, instead of invoicing customers directly, reducing administration and providing a full integrated experience. MedAire recently revealed that when customers call into their assistance service, three out of four calls are resolved onboard, without incurring any additional costs. On the occasion that further shoreside treatment is required, MedAire can refer customers to one of their approved and validated medical providers, which may incur additional costs that require their insurer’s approval. By setting up a DBA between the two companies, MedAire can now manage the case from the initial call made by the client and liaise directly with CRS Yachts in the Verification of Benefits process.
