MedJetAssist medical evacuation membership plan insurance

MedJetAssist is a company that offers members free medical evacuation services. Membership fees start at $225/year. For this members are kind of insured – they can get medevac services whenever and wherever necessary. MedJetAssist claims to offer pace of mind, but don’t be so sure. First read what MedJetAssist says on their website. Then read what they say on their terms of service.

Domestic air medical evacuation averages $10,000 to $20,000, and internationally, it can exceed $75,000. But not with the
medical evacuation service of MedjetAssist. As a member, if you are ever hospitalized more than 150 miles away from home,
MedjetAssist will send a medically equipped and staffed aircraft to pick you up and fly you to the hospital of your choice – at no
additional charge. No transportation cost limitations. No preexisting-condition exclusions. Just peace of mind each and every time you travel.

However, if you are a medical tourist, you are out of luck: The medevac company’s terms of service say that “A member traveling outside the United States for the sole purpose of seeking medical treatment, whether inpatient or outpatient, experimental or otherwise, will not be eligible for air medical transport benefits for that specific trip.”
