Absolutely NO
Out-of-Pocket Expenses

I have witnessed the professionalism of Life Flight Network as a first responder and as a police/fire Chaplain, as they came to provide urgent critical care when someone's loved one needed it most. We found ourselves becoming that ‘someone’. One never imagines the extreme or the impossible horror of a loved one needing such critical care, but it can happen, as it did to our son.

We are very thankful for the professional medical care our boy received at the hands of the Life Flight Network crew. We are also thankful for the operations team and management team who work behind the scenes keeping the helicopters and planes in the air, raising support, processing paperwork and billing, communicating with families, and so on.

We have been blessed by Life Flight Network with not only the service rendered to our son, but their generosity to help our family in the billing process.

If you don't have Life Flight Network Membership ($75 per year), I encourage you to get it. Membership supports this amazing organization and covers you and your loved ones should they encounter something similar to us. We never know when we might need them.”

What does it cost to be transported with a membership?

There are no out-of-pocket expenses beyond your annual membership. If transport is deemed medically necessary or emergent, flights flown by Life Flight Network or one of its reciprocal partners is covered with your membership. Life Flight Network works directly with your insurance company (if you have one) for their portion of the payment and the rest of the cost is covered by your Membership.

Are there copays or deductibles?

No. Life Flight Network membership ensures all deductibles, copays and coinsurance are covered for a transport. In many cases the in-network cost-sharing amount (e.g. deductibles /co-pays) for a patient can be upwards of $10,000 or more, which is covered in full by your membership.

What costs are covered with membership?

All costs for transport by Life Flight Network. If your Membership is current, there are no out-of-pocket expenses for medically necessary emergent transports when flown by Life Flight Network. Life Flight Network works directly with your insurance company (if any) for their portion of the payment and the rest of the cost is covered by your Membership.

What type of transport is covered?

Patients transported by helicopter, airplane, and ground ambulance are covered by a membership when provided for medically necessary emergencies.

Who determines if and where I am transported?

There are several factors that contribute to the transport destination. The sending hospital or agency, Life Flight Network, and the receiving hospitals work together to find the closest or most effective solution for a patient’s care needs.

Do I need to live in an area where there is coverage?

No. Members do not need to live in the service area. The emergency transport will need to occur within our service area or within the service area of our reciprocating partners.

Am I covered while traveling to or visiting an area with coverage?

Yes. If you are traveling into our service area and have a Life Flight Network Membership you are covered for any medically necessary emergent transports.

Is there a limit to the number of transports?

No. Members can be transported as many times as needed for medically necessary emergent transports.

Does membership cover my partner/spouse/family?

Yes. Membership benefits are extended to the primary member, her/his/their spouse or domestic partner and dependents, as claimed on their income tax return. Elderly (age 65+) and disabled family members living in the same household are also covered.

Does Life Flight Network have reciprocal partners?

Yes. We reciprocate with many other air medical programs. If Life Flight Network transport is not available at the time and you or a family member are transported by one of our reciprocating partners, there are no out-of-pocket expenses (subject to the reciprocating program’s membership rules). These partnerships greatly expand the coverage and options for transport for our members.
 
We reciprocate with: Air St. Luke’sCare FlightEnloe FlightCare, and Classic Air Medical. See Membership Terms for more details.

How do I ensure I’m transported by Life Flight Network if I'm incapacitated?

Who transports you is determined by on-site medical professionals. Unfortunately, there is no way to guarantee that you will be transported by Life Flight Network. Members (if capable) or their family can request to be flown by Life Flight Network when that service is being dispatched, but that does not always guarantee that we will be the aircraft requested. Many variables can come into play when dispatching an aircraft. Availability of service cannot be guaranteed due to weather conditions, maintenance, commitment to another transport, out-of-service equipment among other reasons.

What areas are covered by a Membership?

Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Montana. Life Flight Network has bases across the Pacific Northwest and Intermountain West. Our EMS helicopters typically operate within a 175-mile radius of their base, but have the capability to fly longer distances. Fixed-wing aircraft can transport patients throughout the nation, as well as internationally.

Partner Coverage: California, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada, Utah, and Wyoming. Life Flight Network partners with four nationally recognized air medical providers, creating one of the most comprehensive reciprocal partnership networks in the United States. With a Life Flight Network Membership, you can travel throughout the West and have financial peace-of-mind if you are transported by a reciprocal partner, subject to the reciprocating program’s membership rules.
