Who pays for an evacuation?

Jade Taylor says:

An evacuation will be paid for by different parties depending on the situation.

If the patient were a foreign guest with travel insurance, the evacuation would be covered by the guests travel insurance.
If the patient were a South African citizen with medical aid, the evacuation would be covered by the individual’s medical aid.
If the patient doesn’t have travel insurance or medical aid and requires an evacuation due to a medical illness or injury which can in no way be linked to the client and liability on the client seems very unlikely, the patient will be required to pay for the evacuation by cash or credit card.
