|DAN Travel info from Undercurrents|

I just got an email as a part of my undercurrents magazine subscription that had some information about DAN. This is a good resource for divers and you can subscribe at undercurrents.com. Any way Ben Davidson of undercurrents wrote the following, I hope it helps with some of the confusion-
DAN issued a statement saying: "The dispute involves what constitutes reasonable and customary charges for hyperbaric chamber treatment. Even though some insurers may have signed exclusive arrangements with [SSS] in exchange for lower rates, DAN believes exclusive arrangements are not in the diver's best interest, when the diver needs help at the nearest available chamber to avoid medically unacceptable delays." DAN CEO Dan Orr told Undercurrent that discussions are ongoing and he hopes to work out a solution "that's right for DAN members as well as the industry."
Meanwhile, make sure your credit card limit is high enough to cover emergency medical expenses, no matter what insurance you carry. The full story will be in the February issue of Undercurrent."
