Play Safer. Play Smarter.
Scuba diving is a great escape from the noise and traffic to experience the peace and quiet of life under the sea. It’s becoming more and more popular and it’s now estimated that U.S. residents make over 30 million dives each year. There are many wonderful places around the world to dive, and some of the best are:
One of the fascinating things about scuba diving is that each dive is different. In addition to all the places you can dive, there are over 230,000 discovered species of sea life in the oceans and nearly that many remain undiscovered. That’s why Lauren loves scuba diving vacations so much. She is in awe of the varieties of sea life and can’t wait to see what else is out there.
Lauren is an experienced diver who is well aware of the health risks involved in scuba diving. She knows that rapid descents or ascents can cause decompression sickness, middle ear damage or Pulmonary Embolism. She know that deep diving requires caution to avoid oxygen toxicity. Lauren also realizes the importance of maintaining and checking her diving equipment, because defective equipment could lead to decompression sickness or even drowning.
That’s why Lauren came to Good Neighbor – to protect herself in the event of a diving illness or accident.
Although the fatality rate for scuba diving isn’t much higher than jogging or motor vehicle accidents, there are important precautions that can make diving safer. For instance, it is much safer to dive with other people. A recent study reported that in 86% of diving fatalities, the diver was alone when they died. Another important precaution is to carry proper medical insurance.
Scuba diving insurance plans can protect you in the event of a diving illness or accident. In addition to ensuring you have proper medical coverage, good plans offer medical evacuation and other specialized care that may be needed while you are scuba diving.
Lauren was glad to have medical evacuation coverage on one of her early scuba diving vacations. She developed a serious decompression illness while diving near a remote Caribbean island. Since there weren’t adequate medical services nearby, Lauren received medical evacuation services to a hospital that could treat her properly. She was relieved that a friend had pointed her to a good insurance plan before she took that vacation.
