WHY SHOULD I BECOME A MEMBER?
Northwest families live, work and play in our vast coastal areas, open spaces, scenic mountain passes, and rivers, and enjoy all the recreational wonders the Northwest has to offer. This often remote environment can place residents and visitors at risk when they need immediate and specific medical attention, whether it is a pediatric medical emergency, heart attack, stroke or accident. Life Flight Network can quickly dispatch a specialized emergency health care team to an accident or medical emergency to provide critical care life support and accompany the patient on a swift flight to a medically appropriate facility.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF MEMBERSHIP?
Depending upon the distance, air medical transport and patient care charges can quickly exceed $15,000. If you or a covered family member are flown by Life Flight Network or one of its reciprocal partners under a medically necessary emergency air transport, Life Flight Network will accept an insurance settlement (if any) as payment in full, and you will have no out-of-pocket expenses. We bill your insurance company directly for the medical transport, so you will not pay any deductibles or out-of-pocket expenses beyond your membership fee.
AM I COVERED OUTSIDE THE LIFE FLIGHT NETWORK SERVICE AREA?
Whether in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, Northern Nevada, or Northern California, you may be covered if transported by a reciprocal provider, subject to the reciprocating program’s membership rules. Please refer to our website for the most up-to-date list of reciprocal partners.
