Medjet Offers Transport for COVID-19

Medjet > Medjet Offers Transport for COVID-19

Medical transport is probably the last thing on your mind when planning your vacation. However, having a plan before travel is smart in today’s uncertain world. Medjet, an air medical transport membership program, actively transports members hospitalized with COVID-19.

In fact, the service is available in the contiguous United States, Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean.

Medjet members with COVID-19 and who become hospitalized while traveling globally can feel reassured knowing they can get safe and fast transportation with high-quality services. Moreover, they have the active freedom to be transported to a home hospital of their choice.

Like all other programs of its kind, COVID-19 positive member Medjet had previously excluded them from transport. In fact, it is the first to adjust its program to include this type of transport.

“COVID pandemic has emerged as the primary concern among our members. We wanted to address that,” said Mike Hallman, CEO of Medjet. “We always try to evolve our services based on member needs.”

Safer Aircraft and Trained Crew for Medjet who Offers Transport for COVID-19

“We have been able to source more aircraft with isolation pods, and crews with proper training. Our team has overcome challenges in operations, approvals, and ongoing limitations in the 48 contiguous US, Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean. Now, our members can have the same hospital-to-hospital transport benefits we’ve always provided. The level of service our member Medjet will continue to expect remains the same.”

Broader international transport for COVID-19 is not yet available. Medjet covers all instances where hospital care necessitates transportation.

“Even before pre-COVID, accidents like car crashes, heart attacks, strokes, falls, and other medical emergencies happened. They will probably keep happening even after the pandemic ends,” Hallman stated. “Members hospitalized internationally, who are not COVID-positive, remain eligible for transport to their hospital at home.” This highlights the importance of addressing these critical health issues alongside COVID and ensuring preparedness for a range of emergencies.

Cost-Effective Medical Transport

Medjet covers all expenses for transporting a member who falls ill with COVID-19, despite the rising costs. In addition, they maintain their “no cost caps on transport” policy. Since regular air ambulance transport can cost up to $30,000 domestically and up to $180,000 internationally, Medjet is cost-effective.

The new benefit will be available to current and new MedjetAssist and MedjetHorizon members as of October 19, 2020. Medjet memberships will remain the same price, starting at $99.
