    Just talked to Bato on the phone and to MedJet on the phone about Bato's situation in Mexico.

    MedJet's rep went over their stance, which is: to use MedJet, one has to have the need to be an inpatient in the travel country and to receive further treatment back in the U.S at a medical care facility.

    If you prang your body and your bike in Mexico, but you can walk around and aren't an inpatient, MedJet is unlikely to come and get you. You not only need to be an inpatient at a medical care facility, you need to need further care in such a facility back home. Also, they require a medical report from your attending physician stating this. If you can remember this rule while traveling, you may be able to make sure your attending physician words his/her report accordingly.

    If all this falls into place, and you have the motorcycle rider, they'll bring your bike back under the agreement as well.

    Also keep in mind, companies like Adventure Mexico Insurance (a.k.a. Mexadventure), who offer "Platinum Travel Assistance", offer airline ticket(s) to you in this situation (of which Bato took advantage), and they also pay a portion of your bike repatriation - although not the full cost of getting your bike home.

    Know the insurance rules and how the system works and you may be able to have the attending physician avoid a mis-characterization of your situation and thus you will be winging your way home in the event of a mishap.
