Diver's Alert Network or "DAN" is the largest association of recreational scuba divers in the world. It is supported by membership dues and donations. DAN's mission is to help divers in need of medical emergency assistance and to promote dive safety through research, education, products and diving services.
Do you really need dive accident insurance?
Yes! Your primary medical insurance may exclude scuba diving as a hazardous recreational activity and/or may not provide coverage when you are traveling out of the country. If it does provide coverage, it may pay only a minimal amount for chamber treatments. There are also often large out-of-pocket payments for deductibles and co-pays. These alone can total thousands of dollars.
Benefits of becoming a DAN member:
- Provides coverage for the medical costs of diving accidents
- Emergency medical evacuation
- No mileage restrictions on diving accidents
- Emergency Hotline 24/7
We highly recommend dive insurance for all divers!
