Tasker Posted May 26, 2006 Share Posted May 26, 2006 When my GS and I threw each other off of a cliff last year, I was air-lifted to a major medical center from rural Indiana. The resulting cost for this twenty-minute flight was just under $11,000. The bad thing about this was that I didn't even get to sight-see along the way, as I was strapped to a gurney. My flight nurse was cute, though! I recently saw an ad for Medical Air Services Association ( www.medairservices.com ) and was curious if anyone has experience with any of these type of services / coverages? I was lucky that my insurance company paid for the flight, but I have talked with several people who were not so lucky, resulting in several thousands of dollars out of pocket. Since many of us will be riding in very rural areas this year (UnRally comes to mind, with very high cliffs ), I have been pondering something like this. I've also heard this service called "deep wilderness evac services", as well. Thoughts? Link to comment
