Your health insurance could be leaving you exposed …
According to Consumer Reports, 79% of all ground ambulance rides could result in an out-of-network bill.
Emergency transportation is increasingly expensive and not always covered by health insurance. If your provider is out-of-network, you are responsible for a majority of the bill…and that doesn’t include your copay or deductible. MASA steps in where insurance falls short by helping protect families against uncovered costs for emergency transportation.
MASA coverage includes:
- Emergency ground coverage
- Emergency air coverage
- Hospital-to-hospital transfer
- Repatriation to a hospital near home
The risk of an unexpected transportation bill during or after an emergency is real. MASA’s coverage was built to shield against this sudden financial liability. No matter where you are, what happens or why you need help, we take the bill and leave you with a $0 balance.
With MASA, any emergency ambulance bill within the United States is covered.
