Discounted Air Ambulance Flights or Empty Leg Flights

HI Flying - Air Ambulance International due to sheer number of transfers has a number of flights which fly empty leg  and these flights are on offer for our clients - for individual patients and their families, hospitals, corporates and Insurance & Assistance companies.

This adds to the 'Cost Containment Policy' of the company that is to offer Professional services at an affordable cost to all our clients.

We wanted to bring the cost of Air Ambulance economical so that it is affordable to the common man.

 

Empty leg or Backhaul Flights

When you contact us for an Air Ambulance transfer our Medical Flight Coordinators will immediately begin the process of looking for the right option of travel for your patient. Once they determine the option based on the discussion with you and your treating doctor, we can plan to utilize an empty leg or backhaul flight which is half to three-fourths of the cost of a typical flight for you.

Basically this is to utilize the aircraft in both directions vs. one family having to pay for the flight to fly round trip with one leg empty. Once we understand your requirement, we go out to our longstanding regular clients (Assistance companies and Insurance companies), hospitals and other open inquiries to see if your transfer can be conjoined with another transfer. We will work sincerely to reduce your cost. Many times this is successful and we are happy to provide a flight which is a big saving for you.

All our Medical aircraft have two critical care medical staff onboard. The default team is a Doctor and a Nurse.

 

 

Cost Saving Possible

Strategically Located Affiliate Partners

The most costly part of the entire transfer is the operation of the aircraft. The more miles the aircraft has to fly, the more expensive the transfer becomes. If you call an operator that does not have a plane located close to your patient, they must fly a significant number of ferrying miles (empty miles) to reach the patient which adds to the transfer cost. Therefore HI Flying - Air Ambulance International has spent a significant amount of time and resources to locate, identify, qualify and approve only the best of operators around the world. Thereby, it allows HI Flying - Air Ambulance International to respond to you with a timely pick up of your patient by using the nearest aircraft and highly professional medical team that saves your life and money!

 

Connecting Flights

HI Flying - Air Ambulance International is in the network  with all of our Strategic Partners in the Middle East, Europe, Africa, Australia and the United States. We receive information from all our strategic partners informing them of connecting flights, that these partners have available on select days. This provides HI Flying - Air Ambulance Internationalide with an excellent opportunity to save you money on your patient transfer by joining your flight needs with an existing flight. When AHI Flying - Air Ambulance International makes this possible, which happens quite often, you save money due to fewer miles flown.

 

Free Air Ambulance Flight Cost for the Intelligent ones

 

HI Flying - Air Ambulance International can offer free Air Ambulance for individuals or corporates who have a membership with us.

 

You might be thinking that your health insurance would cover someone like Liz Martin all the way. She'd suffered an "excruciating" twisting injury to her back while skiing down in Switzerland last winter. But you'd be wrong. For most health insurance do not cover injury or illness - when you travel.

But if you have a membership with us, we can take care of your transportation back home from any location in the world.

 

When you go for a Holiday-

Does my health insurance or travel insurance cover everything? Or do I need a medical transport membership, too?

 

“For international travel, travel insurance is important," 

 "The medical component will typically cover your hospital bills and emergency expenses. For domestic travel, you’re typically covered under your health insurance policy for emergencies that happen out of town. But for travelers who want to get home to recover, this is likely where both types of insurance will leave you high and dry.

When the Air Ambulance membership will help you.

 

Most travelers do not know that if they get admitted in a hospital while traveling, their health insurance providers won’t necessarily get them all the way home.

 

"Even some of the most comprehensive insurance plans clearly state in their coverage terms that they will transfer travelers to the closest medically adequate facility. "That’s not home -- and that’s where you get stranded."

 

Also, what your insurance provider deems "medically acceptable" might not be acceptable to you, especially if you're traveling internationally. As a consumer advocate who specializes in travel cases, I've lost track of how many people found themselves stranded in a foreign port after falling ill on a cruise. They spent their life saving getting home.

 

So how do you protect a trip when travel or health insurance won't? You have to understand what insurance will cover. You also need to know your options for supplementing that coverage, if necessary. You may, or may not, decide that you need the extra protection of a medical transport membership.

Here is where HI Flying - Air Ambulance International will help you.

 

Travel insurance experts say it's easy to get confused by insurance policies. There's so much that can go wrong when you travel. Most insurance covers "named" perils, or events named in the plan. That can make the terms and conditions a little confusing.

 

For example, a standard policy through a Standard Travel Insurance covers the following-

 

1. Expenses incurred by you for physician-ordered emergency medical evacuation, including medically appropriate transportation and necessary medical care en route, to the nearest suitable hospital, when you are critically ill or injured, and no adequate local care is available, subject to prior approval by us or our authorized agent.

 

2. Expenses incurred for non-emergency repatriation, including medically appropriate transportation and medical care en route, to a hospital or to your place of residence in the United States of America, when deemed medically necessary by the attending physician, subject to prior approval by us or our authorized agent.

 

3. Expenses for transportation (not to exceed the cost of one round-trip economy-class airfare, to the place of hospitalization), and expenses for reasonable hotel accommodations, meals, telephone calls and local transportation for one person chosen by you up to the amount in the [policy] schedule, provided that you are traveling alone and are hospitalized for more than 7 days.

 

4. Expenses for transportation, not to exceed the cost of one-way economy-class airfare, to your place of residence in the United States of America, including escort expenses, if you are 17 years of age or younger and left unattended due to the death or hospitalization of an accompanying adult(s), subject to prior approval by us or our authorized agent.

 

5. Expenses for one-way economy-class airfare (or first class, if your original tickets were first class) to your place of residence in the United States of America, from a medical facility to which you were previously evacuated, less any refunds paid or payable from your unused transportation tickets, if these expenses are not covered elsewhere in the plan.

 

Is it not confusing?

 

"When evaluating travel insurance policies, travelers shouldn’t focus solely on the obvious coverage options for sickness, baggage delay and missed connections. Those are important, but they’re trumped by what I consider to be the most critical travel insurance option of all: Emergency Evacuation Coverage - The EEC."

 

If you suffer a serious injury or illness while traveling outside your Home especially in a remote location, this becomes important. If you can’t be effectively treated at that destination, being  airlifted to the nearest modern hospital is critical.

 

"The cost for this evacuation – onboard a specially-equipped plane with a nurse and or doctor – can run upwards of $100,000 or more.

 

You can either add medevac coverage on your insurance plan or go for one of the Annual medical transport membership plans.
