DAN Divers Insurance Update: [ From the DAN Web Page ]
On Jan. 10, DAN received the following announcement from MedicalHyperbarics.com:
From: MedicalHyperbarics.com [cdammert@medicalhyperbarics.com]
Sent: Tuesday, January 10, 2006
Subject: Recompression Chamber Network To Stop Accepting DAN Insurance
Dallas, Texas, January 9, 2006: The Recompression chamber network branded SSS (Sub-aquatic Safety Services), in service in a dozen popular dive destinations worldwide (and in most cases the only chamber in a several hundred mile radius), has been forced to notify the public that certain facilities in some destinations effective immediately, and others progressively so, will NO longer accept the Divers Alert Network (DAN) AMERICA insurance as a payment method for hyperbaric chamber and medical services.

If your going on an Out-Of-USA Trip, you might want to consider getting PADI Insurance:
I'm currently requesting data from PADI for a DAN equivalent insurance plan, their Dan Preferred Plan equivalent is the PADI Platinum plan for $99.00
