International West Indies Assistance (IWIA) was founded in 2007 and provides medical assistance, evacuations and concierge services worldwide. Our main geographical coverage is within the Caribbean, Central and South America. We have a technical team with a 24-hour switchboard in both English and French for emergencies, air ambulances, medical teams and medical material.
IWIA has a wide list of providers throughout the Caribbean which assists in facilitating assistance requests, even within the smaller islands where difficulties may arise.
IWIA has a very close relationship with the French University Hospitals (CHU) in both Martinique and Guadeloupe which are French departments high level of competences; transparency of medical reports as compared to the other Caribbean islands. Both hospitals work with EHIC (European Health Insurance card) system so there is a major cost advantage for the insurances that only pay 20% of the hospital bill.
