MASA Assist Medical Air Transport Review

#7 in Medical Air Transport

 

MASA Assist is an emergency medical transportation provider that offers its service through a membership program. The company's programs are designed to offset the staggering cost of medical transport (particularly air transport) that could be incurred in an emergency. MASA members pay a yearly fee and one time signup fee, and are then covered should a situation arise that they need emergency transportation.

Services are mainly located in the western hemisphere covering the USA, Mexico, Canada, the Caribbean and nearby areas. Aside from offering medical air transport for members, MASA Assist also provides ground ambulance and helicopter transportation.
