Emergency Transportation Membership

Small MASA LogoOur Emergency Transportation Membership addresses medical emergencies for people who may be traveling  in Canada, Caribbean, Mexico and the United States.
MASA is not a health insurance agency, so no physical or underwriting is required.  MASA is an emergency air transportation and medical service membership.
If you are traveling domestically (U.S. or Canada) or in a foreign country and suffer a serious illness or injury that requires specialized treatment not available locally, MASA will fly you to the nearest appropriate medical facility capable of providing the  treatment you need when the medical facility is more than 100 air miles from the original place of departure.  MASA will arrange your transportation upon certification by an attending physician and MASA’s medical director.
If you are hospitalized more than 100 air miles from your place of residence, and your treating physical along with MASA’s medical director, determine it is medically necessary to transfer you to a medical facility closer to your permanent residence, MASA will take you to that facility.
Each case will be determined by the attending physician and MASA’s medical director as to where the best treatment center for the member is.
MASA will arrange emergency ground ambulance transportation from the site of a serious illness or injury to the nearest  appropriate medical facility, for you and one significant other (spouse, friend or family member), capable of attending to your needs.   MASA will also then transport you to the airport should you have to fly to another facility for treatment.
Remember, you must first be admitted to a local facility and be deemed stable enough to fly.

MASA’s Aircraft Medically Equipped

MASA’s aircraft are located throughout the world but especially in the western hemisphere.   All MASA aircraft are medically equipped and depending upon the medical requirements of the individual member/patient, appropriate medical personnel will accompany the member on the flight free of charge.

Your attending physician and MASA’s medical director determine when you will be flown and to the appropriate hospital.   You must be checked in to a local hospital to be stabilized for the first 24 hours.    Once the decision has been made that you are stabilized, MASA takes charge of all the details and expenses.

MedFlash Program

Platinum members may also participate in the MASA MedFlash Progam. MedFlash is a USB flash-drive that stores a member’s medical history.  Designed to hang conveniently from a key-chain, the information in the emergency medical record (EMR) storage unit is immediately accessible by the treating physician or the member’s advocate in a medical crisis.  If the member misplaces, loses, or even forgets the flash-drive when traveling, there is no need to worry.  At your request, MASA can also access that information and communicate directly with your healthcare provider in a medical emergency.
