Membership benefits and services are the same for all types of membership programs.
What happens when you have a transport:
Mercy Flights will bill your insurance company for services provided. As a member of Mercy Flights, the insurance payment or payments will be considered payment in full. If the member does not have insurance or the insurance applies 100% of the bill to your deductible or denies payment, the bill will be reduced by 50%. This 50% membership discount also applies to non-emergency ambulance transportation and non-transport services.
Who qualifies for your membership:
Mercy Flights membership benefits apply only to services rendered by Mercy Flights for all eligible household members. Eligible household members consist of the head of household, spouse, and immediate family members who live at the same physical location, are legal dependents and are under 19 years of age. These legal dependents can include unmarried dependent full-time students, under the age of 26, who reside at a different physical location or a spouse who resides in a care facility. Qualifying household members also include: disabled children, minor children of non-custodial parents, domestic partners, and dependent parents residing at the same physical location. Disabled children and dependent parents will continue their membership, if they move from the household into a care facility. Please check your card for the eligible members in your household.
Payments and Benefit Coverage:
Due to the prepayment nature of benefits, Mercy Flights membership fees are non-refundable and there is a 30-day waiting period for benefits to take effect for a new membership. This membership plan is not an insurance program. It will not compensate or reimburse another ambulance company that provides emergency transportation for you or your household members. Another ambulance company may provide the transport service if Mercy Flights is unable to serve the patient’s needs within a medically appropriate timeframe. This may occur if Mercy Flights is on another transport or unavailable due to maintenance or mechanical service issues.
Mercy Flights ground ambulance assigned service area includes all of Jackson County except the areas served by Rogue River Fire District or Ashland Fire and Rescue. Mercy Flights has reciprocity agreements for ground ambulance services with these organizations, along with American Medical Response in Josephine County and Glendale Ambulance Service in Douglas County. As a member, if you are transported by one of these agencies, they will honor your Mercy Flights ground membership in accordance with their membership benefits.
In the past year Mercy Flights has met the needs of over 26,000 patients. Mercy Flights can be your lifeline in an emergency. Even if you never have the need for Mercy Flights services, you can feel good knowing your membership contribution helps to save lives and ensure the continuation of Mercy Flights quality service.
