FOGG MEDI-CARD is a quick and easy system recognised in most European resorts (see below for exceptions).
What is Medi-card?
Fogg Medi-card is a quick and easy system recognised in most European resorts (see below for exceptions). In the event of an accident or illness on the mountain, simply show the card to any piste rescue, first ambulance service and/or the first treating doctor in Europe. Where the card is accepted, you won’t incur any upfront costs to get off the mountain and to the doctor.
Does Medi-card replace travel insurance?
No. Medi-card is a quick and convenient way of dealing with the cost of being rescued off the mountain, the first ambulance and first doctor only.
How can I view the policy cover?
Opening hours: Mon-Fri, 9am – 6pm. Closed weekends and bank holidays.
Can I buy a Medi-card without being a Ski Club Member?
Medi-card is available as part of a Ski Club Platinum Membership or by purchasing an annual multi-trip policy from Ski Club Travel Insurance.
Are there any forms to fill in?
The service provider will have paperwork to be completed which will normally be done during or immediately after the rescue.
Will I have to pay an excess?
No. There is no excess on the Medi-card. However, if you have other medical costs to claim under your own travel insurance, any policy excess will still apply.
Do I have to have the card with me?
Yes, as this is proof of your cover. If you do not have the card with you it will be necessary for you to pay the service and then claim back the costs.
How long will it take for my Medi-card to arrive?
Fogg Medi-card takes around 10 working days to be delivered to the address on your membership or insurance policy, from the date your membership or policy is processed, or from the next working day if you join/upgrade on a weekend or bank holiday.
What if I am taken ill on the skiing area?
The Medi-card is still valid as it is for rescue from the skiing area. If you are taken ill elsewhere, such as in resort, you should call your insurer’s emergency assistance number in the usual way.
Are medical costs covered?
Only the first treating doctor’s medical costs are covered by the Medi-card. Any other medical costs, for example if you are flown out of resort to a hospital, should be claimed under your travel insurance.
Will my Medi-card cover me off-piste?
Yes, provided that you are not skiing against local advice.
How much does it cost?
Ski Club Platinum Membership fees, including Medi-card, are:
|0 - 34
|35 - 69
|70 - 75
These membership fees are based on paying by direct-debit (add £10 for debit or credit card payment) *Age applies to the oldest member in the family or couple.
I need a Family Membership. Does each person in my family need a Medi-card?
Yes. The Medi-card is personal to each individual skier and only covers the person whose name is on the card.
Are there any age restrictions?
The maximum age for Medi-card holders is 75*. There is no minimum age.
* The maximum age for Ski Club Single Trip Travel Insurance including Medi-card is 85.
Where is the Medi-card accepted?
Medi-card is accepted in ski resorts in all European countries, except Scandinavia, Bulgaria and Norway. It is not valid outside of Europe.
Which nationalities can use a Medi-card?
The Fogg Medi-card is only available to members resident in the UK or Eire.
If the card is accepted:
The piste rescue, first ambulance and treating doctor will bill Fogg directly for their costs having accepted your Medi-card, and as such payment will be made directly to the service provider by Fogg. Unless you have any other costs to claim under your own travel insurance, you do not need to do anything.
Does my Fogg Medi-card remain valid if my annual travel insurance policy is cancelled, either by myself, or the insurers (e.g. due to a change in medical conditions)?
No, your Fogg Medi-card will no longer be valid if your annual travel insurance policy is cancelled for any reason.
