I am ashamed to admit that I am not insured for diving. And after learning from friends of 'real life DCI experiences'. Its really scary to me, coz I want to dive more and more in the future.
I think I shouldnt take the matter lightly AND am now seriously thinking of purchasing one.

i haf few questions:

does DAN haf their own helicopter/transport for medivac (airlift) from any of the islands to the nearest chamber??
if not then how?? what if they cant get any chopper when we are really in need??or do we arrange for the airlift and then claim from DAN??

do they send a doctor to attend to us?? how far does DAN go to ensure the safety of the customer??
or just merely giving instruction thru the phone....if thats the case, i haf another question... does the person on the other side haf experience wif threating DCS?? or just the common telephone operator reading from a manual??

after paying certain amount, i would expect certain service from them, not just to cover the cost of chamber treatment.....in my case, i am more concern of the transportation to the nearest chamber than the cost of the chamber treatment....

DAN can hire Medivac & assist with it, if they cant find chopper or transport....they will give instruction, just follow the instruction.

DAN will provide Diving MO or Diving Doc to assist on phone.
DCS is to be treated by Diving Doc or Diving MO... U need chamber la bro, so Doc will be at Chamber or if no doc at Chamber, no problem as the Diving Doc can instruct the Chamber Operator on what table to use for treatment.
IMPORTANT: U need to provide the details of the dive etc..the ppl running the chamber will know how to do evaluation.

The person that U call are operator that have manual or standard to assist & number to contact.

Hey If u dont want to pay for diving insurance oso can... when it happen to U then hopefuly u will know what to do without causing trouble to the group or people around U  ;)

So do u know what to do?

If u have more question about DAN do contact them at http://www.danasiapacific.org/

Bro..very power question!!!

HAT no. will work for U if u diving around Malaysian water.
If it happen outside of Malaysia, U can call DAN & ask for assistant even if u dont have DAN insurance but transportation & treatment with your own money (Make sure U have plenty of it)

What I would do is to provide the DAN policy no. & contact to the Dive Operator I am diving with, so incase of emergency..they can straight away contact DAN & provide ur policy no.... the rest will be arrange by DAN & ur diving operator.

As for the ppl. around U.... if U kena bend & they dont know what to do, I cant help u there la bro..how to answer, I know ppl with so many 1st Aid..EFR...O2 provider etc oso dont know what to do when it really happen.

What I can say is that when U do have diving insurance, when it happen, with proper information provided..... part of the battle are won already.

Is all about how fast u can get help, 1st line is to have O2 on-site..... :laughing11: & know how to use it  :laughing11:

Have a look at ur OPEN WATER BOOK...there should be something inside.

:D

aha....that's why i ask bout medivac in the first place.... coz i think that would be the main concern.... if DAN provide everything then cool.... if DAN ask to look for own transport then claim from them...then not cool....hehe....

oh ok... good point there.... so all DAN customers, make sure u guys provide these infos when u check into the Dive centre... rather than kelam kabut looking for it when accident happens......

According to DAN, they cover all in-water accident... above water, NO. In dive-boat ot LOB, NO. Only UNDERWATER accidents....If you perform back-tip water entry and your head hit a rock underwater.... YES.... but then you pengsan (fainted) already lor....  :D :D :D

Achooo!  No lah..What the Brickfields Fella meant,chamber treatment is costly no matter where you are.Even if you only do domestic dive you need cover .Especially abroad like those remote and isolated areas where you need ASAP emergency evac. eg. helicopter ride & they're costly too ;)

With all the replies from members of MUW that DAN insurance is essential... I have another question!!!

Which package do i purchase? they have the normal membership fee at AUD60 which is what we need to pay.. and then they have the extra package - that has standard plan, master plan and perferred plan.... how do we know which one to purchase?? very confusing... Anyone know which one should i purchase? or any advise which one is sufficient?

I bought mine a master plan for extra coverage and depth. but since im just doing recreational i dont think i want to exceed 50m (exceeding 30m also not dare to do that)

Jas, this all depends on one's wallet.... :D :D :D...

Off course, if you are a tech diver and plans to go deeper than 40m, they you have no choice but to buy preferred plan which is for those who plans to go beyond 40m... Premium also more painful.... :D

Remember, the more premium you pay, the more you'll burn when nothing happens..... And DAN does not have NCB (no claim bonus) like our auto insurance..... :D :D :D

I would recommend the Master plan as from the way i see it, it covers a lot more.

Please remember as divers we are not only effected by DCI accidents, there is a whole lot more of other kind of injuries and accidents that can happen to us (exe: kena lanyak (run over) boat-if you can survive this!).

and i bet that this other kind of injuries happen a LOT MORE AND OFTEN then DCI.

Yes you are right about the wallet part oso ;). I have a scenario here for your advice :

I am advised to take up master plan but my wallet is only allowing standard plan (allow up to 40m).
Lets say while diving I am hit with down current and it takes me to 45m and I am down with DCS after I surface.
Will my insurance cover me? I was ONLY diving at 30m when the down current hit me. Which means I did not go to 45m on purpose.

How?

i assume DAN like other insurance agencies will investigate and award accordingly.

Agreed Mephisto, in that downcurrent situation, DAN will investigate..... That's why they have country reps..

Generally, all insurers operate on good faith.... If a diver says he was at 18 metres and was dragged to 60 metres by downcurrent resulting in bends, they will assume the diver is telling the truth...until evidence points otherwise.... If diver lies, insurance is void...

That's a misconception. If they pay you double, you might just profit from the payout. That goes against the principle of insurance, which is to provide indemnity for loss incurred up to the sum insured.

The total chamber & evac costs will just be spilt among your insurers if you are insured with more than one company.
