Medical Emergency Away from Town? Get the Security of Emergency Evacuation Services from SkyMed and LifeFlight with a Discount Through Better World Club

Too Tired to Hike Back from Your Epic Mountain Climb? Umm...You're on Your Own

Bad things can happen in the woods. Or on the mountain. Or wherever it is that you do that kind of dangerous thing that you like to do -- and sometimes even at the resort in Cancun. But whatever your medical emergency (we won't say you were asking for that broken leg), accessing urgent care can be difficult -- and sometimes life threatening -- when you're away from home or far from the city.

If you or your loved ones are hurt while traveling, SkyMed will take you home by air ambulance. Depending on the options you select, SkyMed will even return your family, your vehicle, your pets, and other belongings. Better World Club members can get a one year individual SkyMed membership for $180.00 (regularly $222.00) or a one year family membership for $360.00 (regularly $444.00). Service is available throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, and the Carribean.

SkyMed also offers wider coverage through Global Emergency Travel Services. BWC members can add global coverage to a SkyMed policy for $99.00. BWC will also give 15% cash back to members who send us copies of charges for shorter term policies. Log in to the member section of our website to access the discount. More about SkyMed Takes You Home services at the SkyMed website.

LifeFlight offers emergency medical and transportation services for residents of the Pacific Northwest. "If you're like most people in the Northwest, you live, work and play in our vast coastal areas, open spaces, scenic mountain passes and rivers. These locations are often remote and can put residents and visitors in danger should they need medical attention, whether due to a heart attack, injury, accident or other unforeseen event.

By supporting and working together with local EMS, fire departments and hospitals, we can ensure every patient gets the best care possible for the best outcome."

LifeFlight services are available throughout Oregon, Washington, and Idaho, with reciprocal programs in Wyoming, northern Nevada, and northern California. Better World Club members in the Pacific Northwest can purchase the peace of mind of LifeFlight coverage for the discounted rates of $45, $85, or $200 for LifeFlight's one, two, or five year memberships (the same rates available to members of that other auto club). Log in to the member section of our website to access the discount. Or, find out more about LifeFlight services at the LifeFlight website.

You Already Insured Your Diamonds, Why Not Cover Your Other Best Friends, Too?

Carol Channing and Marilyn Monroe might never have sung any songs about Spot or Whiskers, but there's no denying that you care about them at least as much as all of that ice that you never have any occasion to wear. And you've insured the diamonds, why not your pets?

Better World Club now offers discounts on pet insurance at three different carriers. Members get a 10% discount on customizable pet insurance for cats and dogs from insurer PetPlan as well as discounts on insurance at VPI and ASPCA from 5 to 15% depending on the number of pets to be insured.
