Member Benefit Spotlight

March 2018 Volume LIII Number 2


Medjet is the premier global air medical transport membership program. As a member, if you are hospitalized internationally or domestically—150 miles or more from your primary residence— Medjet will arrange comprehensive medical transportation to a home country hospital of your choice for inpatient care. Medjet’s services are bedside-to-bedside and include all medical care during transport. Membership is applicable for individuals and families with a primary residence in the U.S., Canada or Mexico.


Medjet is a membership program. Unlike an insurance company or platinum card service, there are no deductibles, no claim forms and no monetary caps on air medical transport costs. And for travelers under age 75, there are no medical questions or preexisting condition clauses. Members don’t need to have a transfer deemed "medically necessary." Medjet memberships provide travelers with unrivaled control over their health and safety.


MEDJETASSIST MEMBERSHIP is your most reliable and affordable path back to the care of the doctors you trust, where your family members can be by your side. If you are hospitalized 150 miles or more from home, Medjet will arrange air medical transport back to a hospital of choice in your home country – regardless of medical necessity – and at no cost besides your membership fee.

MEDJETHORIZON MEMBERSHIP – your health, your safety, your sense of security – it’s all here with MedjetHorizon.
