Will my insurance cover the charges?

At Mercy Jets, we go far beyond merely helping you determine whether your medical insurance will cover your transportation costs. We have close relationships with many insurance companies and we’ll work with your company to ensure you receive the benefits to which you are entitled.

What forms of payment do you accept?

Before anything else, we care about the well being of you and your family. For your convenience we accept various forms of payments, including:

  • All major credit cards
  • Bank wire drafts
  • Cashier’s checks
  • Cash
  • Money orders

What services are included in the price quote?

We include all transportation charges in your Mercy Jets price quote, including ground transportation, flight charges, medical teams, and medications. On certain occasions, patients may need an additional level of advanced critical care. In that case, we always disclose any additional costs prior to flight.

There simply are no hidden costs and no surprises with Mercy Jets.

Will my private insurance company pay for my air ambulance transfer?

We’ve never come across a medical insurance company that guarantees payment. If another air ambulance provider claims otherwise, we strongly suggest you look elsewhere for your medical transport services.
