Any suggestions on insurance for backcountry rescue? I've looked into AAC and USARA (which isn't insurance but supports SAR). May 5, 2019, backpacking in Bears Ears (Grand Gulch) I broke my leg, activated my ACR PLB, and via helicopter, was taken to Moab Regional Hospital ER. The airlift bill is $51,000. Hopefully health insurance will consider it medically necessary So I'm looking for insurance for the future. If I can find some decent photos, I'll do my first trip report.
