Northcott Global Solutions Ltd (NGS) may be contacted at any time.
In the event of an Insured Person requiring in-patient hospital treatment and/or evacuation/repatriation, it is imperative that NGS is contacted and authorization obtained prior to such treatment and/or evacuation/repatriation taking place.
NGS must be informed that this Contract covers the person concerned and the following details must be provided:
The Insured Person’s name
The Insured Person’s location
The Insured Person’s details (including passport/visa etc).
The Policy number
Policy holder’s name (if different to Insured Person’s name)
The name and phone number of the doctor and hospital treating the Insured Person (if applicable)

Failure to contact NGS and obtain authorisation may prejudice the claim and could mean that some or all of the costs involved may not be paid. The Assured and the Insured Person should not attempt to find their own solution and then expect full reimbursement from the Underwriters without prior approval first having been obtained from NGS.
In the event that liability cannot be established at the outset of an emergency it is agreed that the first named insured will guarantee payment until such time that liability can be accepted by insurers.
