MedjetAssist is the premier air-medical transport membership program for travelers. If a member is hospitalized more than 150 miles from home and meets transport criteria, Medjet will arrange medical transportation to the hospital of the member’s choice within their home country. MedjetAssist has its corporate headquarters in Birmingham, Ala., and is the exclusive provider of worldwide air ambulance and medical repatriation services for AARP.
- MedjetAssist is on hand, in consultation with the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, to communicate with attending physicians caring for members anywhere in the world (through translators, if necessary).
- If physically able to fly commercial, members always fly first class, accompanied by medical personnel; if commercial air travel is not medically tenable, members are evacuated by fully medically equipped private jet.
- Members hospitalized more than 150 miles from home choose the medical facility within their home country to which they wish to be airlifted.
- Annual membership fees start at $260 per individual and $395 per family (up to 7 members, including spouse, domestic partner and/or dependent children).
