Mercy Flights Membership

Sign Up for Membership Online

Peace of mind starting at just $78 per year.

Out-of-pocket transport fees are expensive

Ground ambulance transport fees typically can be more than $1,200, and an Air ambulance transport fee can be more than $20,000. This is separate from any other medical bills you may receive from the hospital or other medical providers.

Insurance doesn’t usually cover transports

Even the best insurances, Medicare, and supplemental policies can leave very large balances. Members pay nothing out of pocket for Mercy Flights services as long as Mercy Flights receives any payment from the member’s insurance or other third party payer.

Membership reduces your costs

A Mercy Flights membership is designed to fill that gap by eliminating or drastically reducing those costs. Our membership can also save you 50% off your bill should you require a non-emergency medical transport with advanced scheduling.

Does Mercy Flights partner with other agencies when the appropriate aircraft is unavailable?

Mercy Flights complies with federal regulations that make it very difficult for us to enter into formal membership partnerships with other air medical transport agencies. Whenever possible, we partner with trusted providers on a case-by-case basis to meet the needs of our patients. However, Mercy Flights membership benefits will not cover other air agencies if our air ambulances are unavailable.
