Frequently Asked Questions

Did You Know?

  • Air transportation costs can be as much as tens of thousands of dollars per flight.

So, how can you avoid the high cost of medical air transportation?

Why Might I Need Emergency Medical Transportation?

Emergency Air Transportation is for far more than vehicle accidents and other trauma-related injuries. Many transports are for common illnesses and injuries. In many cases, patients are transported for illnesses or injuries that require the attention of a specific medical professional that isn’t available where you are located. These inter-facility transports are much more common than the emergency trauma transports that people tend to think of. If you require an emergency air medical transport provided by Guardian Flight, you will be covered with a membership from Apollo MT by Guardian Flight.

What is a Family/Household?

A household is considered to be the primary member, a spouse/domestic partner, and any dependent children under the age of 26. Extended family members will require their own membership even if they reside at the same address.

Why Do I Need an Emergency Air Transportation Membership?

Emergency Air Transportation can cost tens of thousands of dollars per flight. Even the best private health insurance only covers a certain percent of these costs and many insurers cover much less, which could leave you with large, unexpected bills. With a membership from Apollo MT by Guardian Flight, you ensure that emergency air medical transportation provided by Guardian Flight is paid without contribution from you.

Is the Program Guaranteed?

Guardian Flight makes every effort to respond to requests from our members. We have flight crews and aircraft on duty and available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. However, there are many reasons Guardian Flight may be unavailable to respond:

  • Aircraft may be dedicated to a prior patient transport
  • Weather conditions may prevent flying in your area
  • You may be in a location where aircraft cannot land
  • You may require ground transport
  • You may not be in an area where a Guardian Flight or another AMRG company aircraft is available

I Already Have Medical Insurance. Why Do I Need Coverage From Apollo MT by Guardian Flight?

Typically, insurance companies only cover a portion of the cost for air medical transportation. The majority of private medical insurance companies only pay a percentage of the total bill, which could leave the patient with thousands of dollars in air medical transportation bills on top of other bills accrued during the hospital visit. Apollo MT by Guardian Flight ensures that emergency air medical transportation is paid without contribution from you. Your status is active 3 days after you sign up.

I Don’t Have Medical Insurance. Will Apollo Cover Me?

Absolutely. The same coverage applies regardless of insurance status. Your membership becomes active 3 days after you sign up.

I Have Medicare. Why Do I Need Coverage From Apollo?

Even with Medicare, you may have a substantial co-pay from Medicare and from any secondary insurance that you may have. You may also have trouble getting the emergency air medical transportation costs approved. With a membership from Apollo MT by Guardian Flight, you ensure that emergency air medical transportation is paid without contribution from you.
