FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Dallas, Texas, January 9, 2006: The Recompression chamber network
branded SSS (Sub-aquatic Safety Services), in service in a dozen popular
dive destinations worldwide (and in most cases the only chamber in a
several hundred mile radius), has been forced to notify the public that
certain facilities in some destinations effective immediately, and others
progressively so, will NO longer accept the Divers Alert Network (DAN)
AMERICA insurance as a payment method for hyperbaric chamber and medical
services.

It is hard enough to maintain the facilities available 24/7 with
optimal technical, administrative and operational readiness, but with the
underpayment and non-payment of bills, some over a year old by DAN
America; the chambers feel obligated to the diving public to remain open. To
that end the chambers can no longer tolerate unpaid services, and since
the only insurer in the world who has refused to settle our bills is
DAN America, thus some SSS chambers have no other choice but to ask DAN
America patients to pay for services when rendered and file the claims
themselves with DAN America for any possible reimbursement. Please
note that this action applies only to DAN AMERICA. It does not apply to
DAN Europe, DAN Southern Africa, DAN Southeast Asia-Pacific or DAN Japan.

Divers are advised to check with their insurance carrier prior to
travel to secure verification of coverage.
