Insurance/Medical Concerns

What happens if I get sick?
All approved volunteers are insured through the General Conference of Seventh-Day Adventists, and treatment costs are covered by the GC’s insurance.  It is up to the volunteer to indicate on the insurance forms which conditions he/she wants the General Conference to cover (e.g. scuba diving).

Many of the sites have basic medical treatment facilities nearby.  However, volunteers that develop serious medical conditions will either be evacuated to a more comprehensive medical facility as soon as possible or may have to return home until they recover.

Are there special insurance forms for minors?
All minors need to fill out a Medical History form and an Medical Treatment Authorization form and have each formed signed by a parent.

I have a medical condition.  Am I able to serve?
It depends, stop by the missions office or send us an email with more information and we will let you know what is available.

Will I have insurance coverage while I’m away?
All approved volunteers are insured through the General Conference of Seventh-Day Adventists, and treatment costs are covered by the GC’s insurance.  It is up to the volunteer to indicate on the insurance forms which conditions he/she wants the General Conference to cover (e.g. scuba diving).
