MedjetAssist Medical Air Transport Review
Why MedjetAssist is our Number 1 Choice
MedjetAssist is our top choice for air-medical transportation services because of their extensive partnerships with air carriers and air ambulance providers to cover the needs of their members, including those with pre-existing conditions. Program members are eligible for transport to their home country and city hospital of choice if hospitalized just 150+ miles from their home. It works domestically as well as internationally
Medjet is the industry leader in medical transport, forging a global network of air medical transport affiliates and security providers over the past 26 years. At any given time, Medjet has access to more than 250 private air ambulances and commercial medical escorts, as well as specially trained emergency medical and security personnel, ready to launch from both domestic and international locations 24/7. The company most notably differentiates from other players in the market through its commitment to arrange air medical transfer to the member's home country hospital of choice (not just "nearest acceptable"), regardless of medical necessity.
Medjet currently partners with 250 private air ambulances in 50 locations across the world. This ensures prompt and quick access to transport in a medical emergency. Minimum aircraft accommodations allow for one critical patient, one family member and medical personnel.
Medjet requires all aircraft to be twin engine with a minimum of two certified pilots for each aircraft. All affiliates are also required to comply with Medjet liability insurance policy, ensuring all patients recieve service regardless of air transportation costs.

There are certain limitations in areas covered particularly those with travel restrictions by the United States Department of State. Regular membership allows up to two medical transport per membership year except for repatriation transports involving multiple enrolled family members requiring simultaneous repatriation. Transport restrictions are imposed for individuals suspected of having or have been diagnosed with Biosafety Class Level 3 and above illnesses or diseases by the Center for Disease Control or the National Institutes of Health.
Medjet comes highly recommended because it offers the best coverage and does not place cost limits on its transport services. It even offers members the option of transferring to a hospital of their choice when adequate facilities are available in their location. While other companies pose restrictions in terms of facilities to cut their transportation costs, Medjet gives members the freedom to choose to recover at home. All in all, Medjet trumps the competition by a good margin in terms of the services it offers.
