Not yet insured? Why should you consider to apply for a dive insurance?

Diving is a fascinating sport with fans all over the world. But sometimes they forget that diving (like any other sport) also carries risks. In case of an accident, expenses can mount quickly, and usually have to be paid out of your own pocket. There are not many insurance providers who will meet the costs of treating diving accidents (decompression illnesses) in a hyperbaric chamber. The treatment can be very expensive and many diving bases require evidence of the fact that you are covered in case of a claim, together with a corresponding statement confirming the direct billing facility.

If treatment in a decompression chamber is required, the cost can quickly run into the thousands or in some cases even tens of thousands of dollars – and that doesn't necessarily include charges for a hospital stay, accommodation and transportation.

Hyperbaric Chamber in Roatan

The Cornerstone Hyperbaric Chamber and Clinic offers dependable hyperbaric healthcare to recreational and commercial divers in the region. In addition to hyperbaric medicine, general medical care is also provided to the local community and resort guests. Due to the increasing demand for medical care in the community, what began as a small clinic in a 400 square foot wood building has expanded to its current location and is now complete with an emergency room, x-ray room, two consultation rooms,

one observation room, a laboratory, a pharmacy and is staffed by three medical doctors, an EMT and laboratory technician.

Cornerstone Hyperbaric Chamber and Clinic has recently partnered with Divers Alert Network (DAN) in their effort in building an international network of chambers through DAN's International Preferred Provider Network (IPPN). The objective of this international network is to ensure the availability of high quality, cost effective and specialized medical care to DAN insured members. Through this partnership, the Cornerstone medical staff will receive continued education in hyperbaric medicine.
