Out Of area Protection

What would your family do if you unfortunately died while out of your local area? The financial and logistical difficulties could be staggering and basic health insurance plans, or even Medicaid, do not offer this coverage.

The world’s leading emergency assistance company, Medical Air Services Association (MASA), provides coverage for the return of remains when you’re 75 miles or more away from home. With a single call, MASA takes charge of all the details - removing your family’s stress about what to do next by helping to:

  • Find a local, licensed funeral home to care for the deceased
  • Arrange for the preparation of the deceased for transport, including the advanced cost of embalming and cremation
  • Work with the funeral home to ensure that your wishes are fulfilled
  • Handle all documents, including customs documents, or diplomatic issues involved anywhere in the world

To become a MASA member, complete the application form and submit your one-time membership fee to become a member. In return, you’ll receive a membership card that identifies you as a member and the peace of mind you deserve.

Planning your arrangements online with South Carolina Cremation Society ensures that your final wishes will be carried out…your way. You’ll be in control every step of the process.
