Can I take a medical flight using private health insurance?

If you’re wondering whether your private insurance will cover your medical flight for life saving treatment, Air Ambulance Worldwide is here to help. In addition to providing personalized, world-class medical air transportation services and a team of knowledgeable healthcare professionals, we will handle the logistics of your entire trip and manage your insurance claim through to the end.

One of the main factors that may decide whether you receive coverage is determining if the medical air transportation is “medically necessary.” This means that the medical flight must align with accepted medical standards, be clinically appropriate (in terms of location, frequency, and duration), and must not be for the financial benefit of the patient, healthcare provider, or physician.

When it comes to verifying whether your private insurance will provide coverage for your life saving medical flight, our knowledgeable insurance specialists will:

  • Help to determine the likelihood of your benefit to be paid
  • Track, file, and manage your insurance claim until it is fully processed
  • Alleviate the stress of dealing with frustrating insurance companies and daunting paperwork

Air Ambulance Worldwide takes every measure to reduce costs for our clients, such as partnering with strategically located partners around the globe and utilizing those partners to take advantage of connecting flights. By directly working with some of the best qualified operators around the world, we can ensure a timely transfer and excellent medical care while saving you money since fewer miles are flown to reach you.
