Aren't the DAN programs limited to dive-related accidents and activities?

Being a DAN member you qualify for emergency evacuation regardless if it's a diving emergency. As for the insurance part, I think it is dive related coverage. We are going out self insured. We have a lot put away that we can spend on health care if we have to. We are a young family and very rarely go to the doctors. I know this is a risk, and if we sailed in the US it is a risk I wouldn't take. Tell me if I'm crazy.....

Getting medivac'ed back to the US could get pricey. I've bought trip insurance that covered that, it was cheap for a couple of weeks. I don't know what it would cost for a 6-12month policy though.
