Why should I purchase a MASA Assist membership? An unexpected and serious illness or injury can occur, either while you are home or traveling, which requires specialized medical care not available locally nor covered by your insurance. MASA Assist provides this service to you absolutely free, with no deductibles; no out-of-pocket expenses and anyone can join regardless of age or medical condition.

Our affiliation allows us to provide the MASA membership service to you and your family for 45% less cost than if you purchase the membership on the MASA website at retail cost. Click here for an application, fill it out and mail it to our office. The Platinum membership for a family costs $390 a year through us versus the retail price of $720 on the website. For an individual the Platinum membership is $290 through us versus the retail price of $540 on the website. There is a one-time $30 membership fee to process your application when you sign up (this is 50% off the standard $60 fee).

When you consider that the fee of a local ambulance to take you or a loved one to the hospital can cost a minimum of $1,500 on up. Some health plans will reimburse you for this cost but others won’t. Or, when you consider that an emergency medical air transport can cost between $20,000 to as much as $100,000 with an average of $50,000, the modest membership fee of MASA pays for itself many times over both financially and with peace of mind. Most medical plans will not cover emergency medical air transportation costs, nor the other benefits you see below.
