As teams are mobilized to travel to Haiti and assist residents as they recover from the devastating earthquakes that ravaged the nation earlier this month, has stepped up to help provide travel insurance coverage to those making the trip.

The Rhode Island-based online travel insurance company announced last week it would be partnering with HCC Medical Insurance Services to provide discounted medical and evacuation coverage for U.S. residents helping out in Haiti.

"By working together with HCCMIS, we are able to provide critical coverage most affordably, and protect those traveling to Haiti to assist in relief efforts or to locate loved ones," said Jim Grace, President and CEO of

As a result of the partnership, those who are aiding the recovery in Haiti will receive a 20 percent discount on all HCCMIS Atlas International travel insurance plans that are opened on the website.

The plans will provide emergency evacuation coverage in the event of another natural disaster or emergency, up to $1 million in medical coverage, and up to $500,000 in emergency medical evacuation coverage.

According to the BBC, as many as 200,000 people may have perished in the Haitian earthquakes, which occurred on January 12.
